Thankyou for your help :-)

I've put an 128Mb GF Nvidia card into the AMD dual core machine and 
the Live CD works just fine now.  At the moment its installing 

Unfortunately the other AMD machine is not going to be as easy as 
changing the video card since everything is on board and I believe 
the GPU is part of the CPU.

Either way thanks for producing your PCLinuxOS cd, its much 

Best Regards:
