Sorry to hear you're having such a hard time getting linux going, the only thing I can suggest it double check all bios settings, disable everything not needed in bios to ensure nothing is screwed up, make sure AGP apature size is the same as the amount you have on your gfx card (if you have PCI-X then this doesn't apply)...apart from that, ditch the mobo and buy a new one.

Or set FSB to 10,000 and turn it into a microwave...
