    hi mine is an hp compaq presario sr1235il model pc iam unable to install linux in my pc
    when i keep the cd and restarted first it is propting to press enter to install
    when i do it it is simply restarting and it is repeting
    these are my hard ware profiles

    8 kilobyte primary memory cache
    512 kilobyte secondary memory cache
    3.15 08/05/2004
    processor is 32 bit

    when i checked the MICRO-STAR INTERNATIONAL CO. website which is my main circuit board
    i checked for os support and it is given that it cannot support Linux due to
    chipset limitation. Chipset cannot support APM function
    so is there any alternative

    Sorry, I did some quick research on your computer at both HP and MSI, funny your stats and their stats do not match. So where did you get the Mandrake disk from? If it is a good disk, it should load.
    Research, research, research before you walk the plank.
