This appears to be a fairly widespread problem with Intel motherboard
chipsets, and with Dell computers more specifically..
Try booting the system with the `noapic' kernel command-line option, which
should disable APIC:
LILO boot: linux noapic
If that works, modify /etc/lilo.conf and edit your append="..." line to
include `noapic' in it.
