I have  not used DragonFly in a long time (I think the last ver was <

It starts to boot and then keeps repeating this message

then a few of these show up

The system is an Intel Quad Core 2.40 GHz on a Gigabyte GA-P35-S3G 
I had similar issues with my Quad Core and believe it or not swapping
out the fairly new DVD burner for a fairly old CD-ROM drive got the
machine booted.

I had both my DVD player and my CDR/DVD-R attached so I tried one at a 
time, it still would not boot.
For now I have DF running in a WMware session. And wow with this new 
machine, I don't even notice its running when i am using other apps in XP.

So for now, I'm going to just stick with the WM.

 If its helpful to the project to get this machine to boot, I'm up for 
trying some more testing, like the kernel configs. I might need some 
hand holding to boot from the new kernel from a CD.
