Hello my Linux friends!!!i installed a Linux distro (Mandrake 9.0) for the first time 1 year ago. To say the truth it wasn't my decision :oops: We had a lab course at University called OS. They were teaching us some basic theories about the Kernel (threads, pipes etc) and how to write small scripts. In order to practise at home those things i installed Mandrake 9.0. After passing this lab i stoped working on Linux. Now i have installed SuSE 9.2 Pro on my latest PC and try to do with SuSE whatever i was doing on Windoz. I have an old pc(Pentium@166Mhz) on which i want to install a Linux distro. I had once installed on it Slackware(without X, just konsole) but i've been trying to install some other versions on it. Here is my first question: I try to install SuSE 9.1 on it. When it boots from the CD and tries to load the Kernel i get the following message after the detection of the hard disks : RAMDISK: compressed image found at block 0 and then the Kernel panic message shows up. I have formatted a lot of times my hard disk but nothing changed. What can i do? Should i try to run a disk utility to erase the MBR or it has nothing to do with this? Another thing i dont get is that when i try to install Slackware the Kernels loads without any problems and i can go on with the installation normally.
Question no2:Is there any DVD player for suse 9.2 Pro?Thanks for the answers i'm sure you will give.
