do i have a faulty amd chip?

my install of fedora isnt going well on a old 450 amd mhz computer --i heard i need a patch for the chip for win 95 maybe for fedora as well-for win 98 it seemed to be ok

im using fedora 5

it installled and then when sound card was trying to test it wouldnt, and rebooted and i get a blank screen

so maybe its the video card thats bad?

then i changed video card and added a ethernet card and it still has a blank screen after apearing to start

Just a couple of suggestions. Dunno if they will help or not, but perhaps worth giving it a whirl
Check that your BIOS is using setup defaults or optimized defaults etc. Then, if you can disable items in your BIOS that you are not going to use, such as serial port etc.
If that does not help then you could try starting the installer with linux vesa
and see if that gets you anywhere?
