Install hangups after writing file system

I have a new system, and I'm trying to install FC1 on it. Everything 
goes fine until its time to write packages and then the system hangs. 
Little hourglass cursor keeps turning, but the progress bar doesn't 
show anything. I've installed Mandrake 9.2 on in it, which installs 
fine, but will not boot because the kernel won't load properly and a 
host of other errors (says the disk is read only and shuts down). I'm 
not sure where to look to see if there's a log I can get to that will 
say what the problem is. Thanks for any help.

Albatron KM18G Pro MB (nForce 2 based)

120 GB HD on Primary IDE (master)
