I just downloaded the Mandriva Live CD but seem to be running into some problems when installing it.
To begin, my system is an Aspire notebook with an 80gb HDD that has been split into two Fat32 partitions ( I wish they hadn't done this when they sold me the p.c. ).
I booted the live cd and began running the install wizard. When I had to create the partitions for the Linux os, I chose to resize the second fat32 partition, giving about 2.9 gb for the Linux system. I made a 1.5 gb '/' partition, a 313mb swap, and a 1gb ext3. After this, the wizard begins copying the files. At about 3 1/4 into the copying process the wizard just stops and nothing else happens. So, I'm left with a Fat32 partition, a slightly resized Fat32 partition, and these other partitions. So, when I start the computer, I don't see any boot managers... Just windows... :(
Any ideas much appreciated. Thanks.
