It should work.

You need to give us more information, such as bios setup, specially in the PCI/ISA part, VGA card, CD-ROM, HD controller and others.

We also need to know exactly what happens and in what point of the installation it does stop.


Since you never mentioned the exact version nor given us any detail of what happens when you try to install, I assume that your basic install failed. Normally ATX motherboards come with built-in Video/Disk controllers. If your disk controller is set to native mode by default (in BIOS) you may need special driver.
Try disabling the PnP option in you BIOS. For more details check sco site and look for TA# 109441

Try disabling power management in your BIOS. I think de advance option on a ATX case may be de reason that i can`t start.-
