Your P4 is a socket 478, take this in account: with my 478 P4 Northwood 2.8GHz, I didn't have any luck using XxX 10.4.11, with any of that release's kernels. Uphuck 10.4.9 1.4 r3 worked okay. I cannot comment on 10.5.x.


The chipset of your motherboard is an Intel 875P (ICH5). It might be a little bit too old to work well: my P4 mobo is an ASRock P4VM890 which has a VIA P4M890. It worked okay, but Adobe CS2 was rather slow.
