That's REALLY old. There is a more recent snapshot (like within the last
week or so), and there is the 1.5.2 release (which is older code, but
newer than 1.3I). Please try one of those.

As above, please try something newer than 1.5.0, either the 1.5.2 release,
or a recent snapshot of -current. The 1.5.2 release is considered more
stable, and should support that machine fine.

You also realize that this install will need the full drive, don't you?

Take care,
