    I am trying to install mandrake 9 (Linux) in one of my hard drives. After I boot from the cdrom, the window to install the os will appear and I will press enter as directed. Immediately, I receive many messeages and the system stall at hda: this will blink for about 10 minutes and this other message will appear hda:spurious 8259A Interupt: IRQ7.
    Please, what can I do to fix this problem and install Mandrake 9. I am running w2k on my slave hard drive. Thank you.

    Enter bios setup and disable Plug and Play.It may help.
    I found this and from what I read,it's a non fatal error.It could be anything in hardware.What kind of stuff you running?
