UBCD 5.0.12b Parted Magick wont boot on Dell Dimension 3000

I was attempting to use UBCD 5.0.12 beta's Parted Magick boot option to run Gparted on a drive, but Parted Magick wouldn't boot. A number of linux loading screen and text would appear, however after a few moments it would get stuck on a blank screen with a blinking cursor in the upper left corner. After waiting 30 minutes, I shutdown the system. This occurred with a UBCD CD that works great on a Dell Precision T7400.

Reproducible Steps:
1. Boot UBCD 5.0.12 beta on Dell Dimension 3000
2. Select either boot from CD or load into RAM
3. Select Parted Magick

boot hangs with a blank screen with a blinking cursor.

I've found some threads on the forum that sounded similar, they mentioned CDShell hanging in UBCD 3.3. Is that possibly related?

Has anyone seen this, other than me?
