It seems that I have been having trouble installing any of he latest Linux distros. I traced the problems to a mandrake forum where they mentioned that comps with a 1GB of ram have some vesa frame buffer problem which causes the install to hang. I havent had luck installing any nversion of linux on my new system, wheras I didnt have any trouble with my last one.
Anybody else heard about this. SO far I have only heard mention of this in reference to MDK 9.1.
