    Can't install mandriva


    Hi, i am new to linux. I got Mandriva-Linux-one-2009-KDE4 from a freedom toaster near to where i stay. I tried installing mandriva from boot up onto my 250GB SATA hard drive. But after i push enter at the "boot linux" screen, it shows its loading mandriva... After a while I get a black screen that scrolls with linux code. It seems to be rotating the same code over and over again. The code, however, scrolls too fast for me to read. Any commands I try entering after that does nothing. I have installed mandriva to another pc before, but it normally just went straight to set up. Any help?

    Try boot option xdriver=free.
    But be careful after setting the option, to selectt the option boot live.
    If you need a CD/DVD catalogizer, give a try to my program:
