need help installing mandriva
Hi, I have a pc which had xp pro on it that kept messing up, so I burnt mandriva onto a cd. i tried booting from this cd, with no luck. i deleted the partition on the hard drive and tried booting from the cd still with no luck. i am now installing xp back onto the pc to try and get mandriva again, i am just having problems with having it load onto my computer! is there something im missing here, or what? i am new to linux and have never dealt with it before so i am not sure of how to load it onto a computer that already had windows on it... any help would be greatly appreciated.
