Cache line size set incorrectly - Installing Redhat 9.0

Hi everyone, my name is chinx. I am new to Linux and new to this forum.

I am trying to install Red Hat 9.0 on my MSi Laptop. But when I try to boot the CD, after selecting either GUI or CLI type of installation, I get this:

PCI: 00.03.3 PCI cache line size set incorrectly (32 bytes) ...
PCI: 00.03.3 cache line size too large - expecting 16

Can anyone please explain this to me? I've tried searching in google, their advices there was to disable the USB something etc. I tried but what happened was this:

(please take a look at the video 'coz I can't explain it by words of what's happened)

Laptop Information (if this matters)

MSi VR300x-T44
Intel Dual Core T4400 2.2ghz

From the looks of it the system does boot, but the graphics settings are way off, leading to that scrambled screen.

Here's what you can do:
  • When the Logo appears, use the function keys to look through the boot options. There should be a way to specify the graphics settings instead of relying on auto-detect
  • Install the system in text mode
  • Try a more current distro, like Fedora or Ubuntu. These should be able to detect your display more accurately. This is probably the best approach, since Red Hat 9 is 8 years old by now, and it will be difficult at best to get current software running on it.
