problems installing linux
Hello, Please, if anyone can help, i'm desperate...
I've worked my way through about 3 linux releases trying to install any one of the three that could work, but nothing seems to work.
I just bought a new AMD 64bit pc, and now i'm having trouble installing my linux.
I Have mandrake linux 10, mandrake 10.1 community and mandriva linux 2005 limited edition.
Firstly, when I want to install my mandrake 10, I start the installation and then it tells me that there is no cd-rom, and to insert the additional drivers floppy (which I cant find).
My mandrake 10.1 community installs, and boots, and starts etc...
but, I can't seem to compile c++ code on it, it says the g++ command is not found or unknown... I also don't know how to install these packages.
And then, my mandriva linux install starts but then just randomly reezes somewhere during the installation?
I really need linux to do a c++ assignment and i am now clueless.
Any ideas to how i can just get a linux installed on which I can compile my c++ code???
It would be greatly appreciated

Have you tried installing gcc from the installation CD? It's been a while since I used Mandriva/Mandrake but you should have Install Software selection under Software Manager. Just perform a search for gcc.

10.1 Community is kinda buggy, try getting 10.1 official, it is more stable. Also gcc can be found under the development submenu in the Mandrake installer.Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.

Yes, I went to install software in 10.1 (the one that installs), but I can't seem to find the gcc package there? How can I just install the package?

gcc can be found under development in the software update of the MCC:
Or you can install gcc with urpmi, first setup the correct ftp servers using this easyurpmi site, then
as root, enter into a terminal:
