Ok friends here it is,

I am currently using a Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop, but i also came across the same problem on Dimension E510 desktop. I swear their is some kind of control built into the Dell proprietary BIOS that prevents me from loading linux... Fedora core and Ubuntu fail to load or freeze during installation. Am I crazy or is Dell just playing master of the universe... (Note: i have investigated using the top command in Ubuntu's BASH [gnome version 9.04] and found KDE processes i couldn't kill...curious, and the GUI freezes after boot)
