Hello,

I noticed the same problem with the 2006.0 release media. Unfortunaly it does install perfectly even with fans at full speed. 8)

you might want to download the 2005.1-1 install CD. There it works perfect. you can find it in /releases/ppc64/2005.1-r1/installcd/ on your favorite mirror.

I'll comment on bug #124403 that this bug exists. it should be fixed in the next experimental cd or in the next release.

Regards,

Markus
