I have seen my CPU temp max out at 43deg C, is that bad? My CPU is an athlon xp 1700. I have my mobo set at 133 mhz, which with the double data rate is now 266. My CPU ratio jumpers are set at 5x (266mhz * 5 = 1330 mhz) well below the expected 1.47ghz it is supposed to run at.
I first turn on my comp and try loading in Linux Slackware 7.0 from a bootable CD (since there is no OS on my hard drive and my comp doesnt recognize my floppy yet). I usually get to the end of installation when it says to reboot, I hit yes and it shuts partially down. I than turn off my comp and try to reboot. LILO is not recognized, and sometimes the computer will shut down and reboot back to the beginning. Sometimes it will just freeze up after the reboot. I dont know whats going on here. Help is you guys can.
