IBM Net Vista freeze up

By jufarah56 ·
I have an IBM 6578 THU netvista for a few years now. I ran everything from Linux or SLAX to MS Server 2000 or XP. Always took what ever format I had to give.
I've recently come up with a problem. I've tried last week to install MS Server 2000 again after a Linux Debian was already installed. I've been getting a problem no matter what I try to run. I've even tried SLAX linux which runs off of the CD rom and it tells me I've passed through some sort of zone...I forgot. But even when I reformatted and tried to put the MS Server 2000 on, it keeps on freezing up after it starts the GUI part of the setup.
It's out of warranty so I'm sure IBM wants my credit card # for a PC that's a P III/133 with SD ram 256 mb max and 20 GB HDD I don't think it's worth it. But I'm attached and would like to practice Server again.
Any ideas as to wether it's the HDD or power supply....? or something else I could try?
