cant get mandrake/knoppix to boot/install.not even safemode
first time on the boards so be nice. ;o)
i really like the idea of runnign linux. but its not turning out to be as simple as it sounds like it should be. i cant get knoppix to boot not matter what i try . nor can i get mandrake 10.0 to install. they both just freez up shortly after it detects my system. (system= celeron 1000, 314 ram, epox mainboard, SB live, GF3 ti 500 and 40gig WD HD) i have tried skiping hardware dection with both knoppix and also mandrake but it still just locks up. the harddrive is clean and fresh formated fat32. if anyone has a idea they think i should try i would be verygreatful. thanks.
