can't load or boot linux cd on xp machine
need help booting & loading linux onto my computer that has xp. i had no problem booting from cd on my old win2k machine but no luck with this one. the problem that i'm having is that when i boot from cd it seems to stall at "probing for scsi devices" - the cd stops spinning & nothing happens. this occurs when i try to run live cd, safe mode & video safe modes. not sure what to do - any help is appreciated thanks.
