I've installed DSL linux -- no problem
My expertise is in the HP3000 (non windows, non unix) environment.
When I boot from Centos CD#1 I get a Panic error..... I'm thinking
hardware is the issue so I try a different machine, same thing.
I've tried 'linux rescue', 'linux mem=256' still the same error, which
is mostly unreadable to me because most all the messages roll off the
top of the screen.
I am willing to buy new hardware, what hardware will just work right out
of the box?
Or are there other boot options?

Have you tried to check the media?
Check each CD as it prompts you to replace them. If that fails try it
with DMA turned off.
linux mediacheck ide=nodma
If everything passes, try the install with the nodma option then. That
has caused me grief in the past.
