Yeah, i've had the same results with redhat on old machines. Even in text mode.
Try a minimal install and then once you're up and running rpm from there...

Burning some incense might help too :)

I chose to set this computer up as a Linux-only machine, and I accepted most of the defaults, so there should be no unusual configuration problems. Package installation starts OK, but about 5-10% of the way through the install, it stops. Messages on the screen are not particularly helpful, here is a part of what appears:
