IBM Netfinity 5000




I have an old Netfinity 5000 server that used to run WinNT and I'd like to install Fedora on it, any "recent" version would do (basically, from 10 up). I started with a Fedora 12 DVD and it booted partway ... froze, then the screen said 'Cannot find root partition.' So I decided to try a Fedora 10 disc instead, same result. Tried using an F10 LIVE KDE disk, same thing. It just won't boot up.

Hardware wise, it has 2 SCSI drives in it, and an IDE DVD drive. A dual head Matrox card has been put in to replace the original planar video on the board. Any suggestions where I should start diagnosing this beast? Thanks!
