I have a P166 MMX whit 40M of RAM and a SB PnP compatible sound card with a Intel 82430TX PCI mainboard whit a 82439TX(MTXC) chipset.

When the Linux installation starts, the system decompress the Linux kernel and begin the initial sequence.

After a while simply it reboots.

The last thing that appear on the video is something like: "ramdisk ..." (I cant read it because the scrolling is too fast).

Thanks for the help.

If possible try and boot your system with a bootdisk. If the system then boots, check the file /usr/adm/messages, it should be able to tell you where the system boot is stalling. You should then be able to begin to diagnose the problem more effectively.
Also, you might try running "e2fsck" (as root) manually if you manage to get up with a bootdisk.

Good Luck Man...
