Can't load linux and have tried 5 today
okay I have a oldish computer that I put together from 3 old computers, which was originally running windows 98.
It is a pentium 3 933mhz on a GA 6vx7-4x mobo and 256MB's of Ram and 2 x 20GB hard drives.
I had trouble loading Linux and I have tried a couple including DSL, Fedora 8, Slax, xbuntu 7.10, and Ubuntu 7.10 alternate.
I get just past install and all I get in most of them is a flashing cursor in top left of screen, which if the cd was whirling I would accept as loading, but it is not.
So lacking in advice I used the ultimate boot cd and wiped both drives, but that still has not helped me to load.
So I am stuck, any help ?
