i tried booting up an install disk, it took a long time but eventually gave up and continued booting windows. Anyone know of a patch or a release that supports this motherboard? anyone have luck with this type of setup?

ok i found a different post on this forum that a guy got it to work with a kalyway disk. does the image i get HAVE to say kalyway? i got a couple images labled AMD, one is 10.4.8 the other is 10.5 something. but whenever i try to boot the disk in the past it would hang.. can anyone recommend what i should do? any bios settings i should tweak? should i add drivers to the disk and burn it again? is their a specefic disk image you guys recommend i should download? i really want to get this up and running without completely changing my config. thanks guys :)
