Having problem installing Mandrivia LE 2005, Please help !!
I am new to Linux and am very keen to try out a new OS to run with Apache, PHP & MySQL. I have somehow managed to configure AMP to work with Window XP and everything seem to work OK so far . But somehow I feel that Linux seem to be a more naturally choice with AMP, may be because they are all open sources !!?
My current set up:
OS: window Xp sp2.
HDD: 1x80 gb SATA,C:, 1x200 gb SATA,E: (Both drives have been formatted with NTFS unfortunately.)
My intension is to install Mandrivia on drive E: and leave window XP and all its application in C:.
My problem : After inserted the DVD and restart the computer , everything is OK and the install splash screen come up, I tried every options to install but everytime during the installation all i get is a blank screen and could not proceed any further. Also tried everything using the boot> prompt with text with no suscess :(
Any comment/help is much appreciated.
The otherthing is: if I manage to install mandrivia on E:, Is it possible to for both window and Linux applications to store data in E: assuming that that it has been parttion correctly. Sorry to ask question like this as I am not only new to Linux but also have little understanding on how thing work with hard drives(ware) in general.
