I have a ECS k7s5a, with 1 gb Ram, Nvidia 7600 GS 512 MB video card, I have tried to load Excalibur several times, downloaded five times, burned it at DAO, at 2 X, 4X and 8X, on 2 different CD and DVD burners, for some reason it starts loading and then it goes "blank", I can see activity on the HD blinking light, and left the machine on overnight, never loaded....Am I doing anything wrong?
The only version that works fine in my machine is Easter 2006-01 rc4...I am at a loss about it.

Most likely it is a gpu releated problem, you can do 2 things:
a) add a "3" (without quotes) to the boot options (tab on live, grub2 uses e / ctrl-x)
b) install nvidia binary:
b1) live: sudo install-nvidia-debian.sh
b2) hd: login as root, then: install-nvidia-debian.sh
in some cases you need -d as option.
force vesa driver (good for short live tests without internet)
sudo init 5

I will try that, is any known issue with AMD XP 2800 ( 2.2 ghz) processors?.... so far I have been very happy with previous versions of Kanotix.

The cpu is not important. Have enough ram and it usually works. At least 256 mb for kde 3 or 512 mb (better more) for KDE4.
