Troubling Install, About to Give Up
Alright, so I've been a Mac user all my life. I love it, it works great, it's secure and it's gorgeous. On the other hand, I also have an awful IBM NetVista running Windows ME (if you could call it running, it barely turns on.)
Now, on this IBM I decided to try and revive it by installing Linux on it. A few people suggested xubuntu, because it was treat my machine better. So, I tried to install it by downloading it on the PC, to find out I can't burn images on that computer.
So, then I downloaded the iso file on my Mac and burned it on to a CD as an image. Put it into my computer and it said "Cannot read. Try 32bit distribution. "
Finally, I attempted to download the 32bit distribution of xubuntu, burned it, got to the installed screen, hit INSTALL.
Then I got the xubuntu loading page, I believe, with the little blue bouncing back and forth. After about five minutes of that . .
I get a black screen with a white dash blinking.
Am I just wasting my time with Linux? I believe so.
Somebody tell me what's wrong, or I'm going back to Windows.
