[PLUG] BIOS EDD -- new install hangs

I'm trying to install linux on an older machine (Celeron 700 vintage).
I've tried several distros: ubuntu, debian, Mandrake. All of them have
the same result: they hang after ACPI reports its wake devices and EDD
reports devices. The last line before a hang reads thus:

ACPI: (supports S0 S1 S3 S5)
BIOS EDD facility v0.16 2004-Jun-25, 6 devices found

After that, nothing.

Board is a SuperMicro 810 with Amibios 1997 1005001460 R 1.2C

I don't know what kernel version it's trying to install, since the
messages go by so fast, but surely its the 2.6 series. By the way, an
older Mandrake, 10.1 community, did boot on this machine at one time.

Any ideas? I'm not even sure what to google.
