    HI

    was hoping someone could help, I just got a new pc at work, I added a old geforce 7400 or something and a 1GB of ram. Now it ramdomly restarts especially when I try to install. Any ideas would be great!

    It can be run from a dos bootable floppy, or you could burn a linux ISO DVD and boot from that.
