Installing Linux on an older PC.
OK i have an older PC. It is a single core 1.25 GHz processor, I think it has 1 gig of RAM and a 60 gig hard drive. I first tried to load Fedora 16 on it. I first burnt the ISO to a DVD and it started to load the first loading screen and then would stop almost at the end. I restarted the PC and it got stuck at the same spot. I burnt the DVD a few days before so I thought it may have been scratched or something. I went back and burnt the ISO to a CD and the exact same thing happened. After awhile I gave up on Fedora and thought I would give MINT a try. I have never worked with MINT or even seen it in action. I first download the CD edition and it would look like its starting to load it showed a network configuration screen. after that the screen went black and all I could see was the mouse. I tried a few times, checked all my connections and still did not work. I then downloaded the DVD edition and tried that and the exact same thing happened.
Has anyone else had issues like this? any thoughts on what I can do to get a linux distro loaded?
