Hello, I was wondering if anyone could help me with my installation problems. I have a MSI MS-7184 motherboad, AMD 64 3400+, 200GB ATA harddrive, and ATI Radeon Xpress 200 (128MB) onboard video card. I have 'Mandrivia Linux: Limited Edition 2005' (3 Disks) version of mandrivia. I cannot get past the screen where, I assume, it is autodetecting my devices; whatever happens after you push enter after booting from cd. I have also tried live cds but all seem to give me some USB error; I did, however, manage to get knoppix to load after using a command to disable USB but my LCD monitor was 'out of timing'.
I have tried removing all of my USB devices and plugging in a standard mouse & keyboard but still can't get past the first screen. I'm very new to linux but would really like to get it working as I have had it dual-booting on past systems.
Do any newer versions of mandrivia have added support or features that will be more compatable with my system? If there is a similar distro of linux (beginner & installation friendly :wink:) I am willing to give it a try but prefer mandrivia.
Any help would be much appreciated but please try to keep it simple. :lol:
