Yes, I looked over your dmesg, but I couldn't find anything useful in
it. I would guess something in the hardware is broken or misconfigured
or that Linux just can't deal with for some reason.

Try removing all devices except for floppy, CD drive, one hard disk
and video card and reset the BIOS to default settings. Maybe try
another distribution.

And double check the floppy.
