    Question How to install Linux on CQ60 - 104TU


    i tried to install Ubuntu (i think some old version..5..) and fedora core 5 on my compaq CQ60 - 104TU...

    in both cases the installation failed on 3rd step... indicating that CD-ROM driver not found...

    should i try installing fedora core 10?

    can anyone tell what's the problem?

    Don't know why you are trying to install such old distros. Your computer is way to new for their kernels for starters.

    Fedora Core 10
    Debian Lenny
    Ubuntu 8.10
    Mepis 8
    Linux Mint 6
    Open Suse 11.1
    are all viable options for you.

    The site was down for me when I tried to edit my post. I read in Ubuntu forums where Ubuntu 8.10 worked right out of the box with no terminal action needed for wireless or display for your model of computer. Just thought I would pass that on to you.
