The Linux does not boot in my laptop
I installed Linux on a dell laptop, and it has GeForce FX 5200 Nvidia graphics card, which i could not find in the options provided for the X configure during installation. However, the installation was complete and then now when I try to boot with Linux, the computer hangs with the Mandrake Linux logo with a blue screen. I tried pressing Esc and then Ctrl+Alt+F1 but there is no effect. Please let me know what needs to be done. I am little frustrated with this error. I even tried installing Linux, two- three times again, but the problem still remains.
Thanks to all that are willing to help.
Re: i have some questions
it is a little more difficult than mandrake, and people are only suggesting it because it is good :wink: and it doesn't boot into x by default. However, if you are not comfortable with Linux yet, i would hold off. There are several other user friendly distro that may work better with that graphics card (fedora, suse, mepis, yoper, ubuntu, etc...)
