I WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO INSTALL LINUX!
Oh my god , i will never be able to install linux!
Firstly , 2-3 years ago I TRIED to install mandrake 7 but unsuccesfully.
Now , i 've got the 3cd's of mandrake 10.1 but even now i cannot install them!!!!
The error is when i boot the cd with the help of floppy (the cd cannot be booted automatically even thought it is referred to the readme that it can be installed without floppy).The error:"Could not open compressed ramdisk file"
I tried to boot from the 2nd cd , but "this cd is not a linux cd"......
I am depressed because i will never be able to install them...i hate xp
Re: I WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO INSTALL LINUX!
Please don't give up on Linux just because of problems with Mandrake. If you're starting from scratch, consider your options: Distrowatch is a respected source for information. I recommend Fedora for ease of install and no compromise for my uses. Others have their opinions. Mandrake is a good distro, and popular, but they apparently have an agonizing record for problems on install for a lot of would-be users.
