Why does my computer restart when loading Ubuntu Linux live CD?

I keep trying to start Ubuntu Linux in live CD mode, but it isn’t working. Right after the window that says “Loading Linux Kernel” the computer restarts. I am using a new computer that I just built. My specs are:

AMD Athlon 64 3800+ 2.4 GHz
160 GB Seagate HD (Partitioned into 2 80GB segments. I was planning on installing Linux on one of the partitions)
64 Mb S3 virge video card
48x CD-ROM

The video card and CD-ROM are old, and I used them for right now because they were just laying around anyway. I’m going to upgrade both of them as soon as I have enough money, but everything else is new, and i haven’t noticed any other problems with any of the components.
