Try Grml 1.0
I find it sometimes works better on older hardware such as my pentium II.
Your machine is likely to be hanging when udev creates the device files.
Udev was moved to libata in grml-2008.11

You may have to load the sound driver manually after booting with:

modprobe snd_sbawe

Good Luck
