Hi, started using linux due to my major in college, anyways, i tried installing mandriva 2007, i would put in the CD, boot up and get to the main screen with the different options,

when i hit install (or install with acpi disabled), it will tell me the linux kernel is loading, then i'd either get a blank screen or a blue screen with the mandriva logo, and nothing else happens.
