problems installing linux
Hello, Please, if anyone can help, i'm desperate...
I've worked my way through about 3 linux releases trying to install any one of the three that could work, but nothing seems to work.
I just bought a new AMD 64bit pc, and now i'm having trouble installing my linux.
I Have mandrake linux 10, mandrake 10.1 community and mandriva linux 2005 limited edition.
Firstly, when I want to install my mandrake 10, I start the installation and then it tells me that there is no cd-rom, and to insert the additional drivers floppy (which I cant find).
My mandrake 10.1 community installs, and boots, and starts etc...
but, I can't seem to compile c++ code on it, it says the g++ command is not found or unknown... I also don't know how to install these packages.
And then, my mandriva linux install starts but then just randomly reezes somewhere during the installation?
I really need linux to do a c++ assignment and i am now clueless.
Any ideas to how i can just get a linux installed on which I can compile my c++ code???
It would be greatly appreciated
