APIC problems - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

I've been trying to get Mandrake 9.1 going on the computer I built. I've been having problems just after installation - it won't start up from the hard disk (the screen just freezes). The last time when I started my computer, I was getting some APIC error messages (which I guess stands for Advanced Programmable Interrupt Controller).

    Default APIC problems

    I've been trying to get Mandrake 9.1 going on the computer I built.
    I've been having problems just after installation - it won't start up
    from the hard disk (the screen just freezes). The last time when I
    started my computer, I was getting some APIC error messages (which I
    guess stands for Advanced Programmable Interrupt Controller). I went
    into my BIOS setup and disabled APIC, and then my computer started.
    Does anyone know what's going on? I bet it's a bad idea to disable
    APIC. Did the installation work incorrectly, or is it a hardware
    problem?

    By the way, my motherboard is an Asus A7N8X-X and I have an AMD ATHLON
    XP processor in it.

    Try starting Linux with the "noapic" boot parameter.
