2005 LE Installation problems
I am a total noob to Linux, but thought I would try out Mandriva from reading thru the reviews. I downloaded and burnt the iso's to individual cd's then booted to the 1st cd. After that I encounter several problems that I need assistance with. First, my USB M$ Intellimouse Explorer is never detected and I have to just bypass that screen to move on. I tried all the possible selections and none have worked. That can be fixed later, but my biggest problem is the install never gets past a screen that says:
"Installing driver for hard drive controller nVidia Corporation | CK8S Serial ATA Controller v2.5"
I checked and the hardware is certified:
so I don't know where to go from here. I tried to redownload the first CD from a different mirror and it did the same thing. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance!
