AV7 with Linux Red Hat 7?

Has anyone ever tried to install Red Hat 7 (or any Linux for that matter) on an AV7 board with a duron (or thunderbird, whichever) chip? I have been trying for a while and although the Red Hat hardware compatability list lists both the board and the chip as compatible, they are specified as the most dificult install. I was wondering if anyone had any experience or suggestions.

    The I/O addresses for my system are different (I have BIOS 1004D) than
    those listed on the website:

    A - 0x9000
    B - 0x8800
    C - 0x8400
    D - 0x8000

    For Slackware 7.1, I used the following command with the installation boot

    boot: ramdisk ide2=0x9000,0x8802

    The IBM drive is setup as /dev/hde
