Troubles w/ Linux install
I am the Mandrake 9X ISO burned to cd and a bootable floopy from winrar with the CD image. I have a pentium 75 with 500meg HD and a CD-rom with floppy. The HD has been formatted and I looked thru the bios to see that the only options to boot are c and a drives. The Cd-rom does not come up. when I start the machine with the floppy and cd in, the install screen shows up, but does not access the CD>
eventually another screen comes up informing kill signals are being sent...
install exited abnormally :-( recieved signals sending terminnation signals - done
sending kill signals - done
you may safely reboot system
that is it!
ALT F3 yeilds this info....
