Noob to Linux, can't install it!
I really want to learn Linux, but I have problems getting it installed. I tried Mandrake and everything goes well until I have to configure X. It shows up as not configured in the setup dialog and after I configure it it fails the test and says no device found. I have tried 3-4 of the available drivers, no dice. I also tried SuSE, and it freezes during install while activating USB devices. It gave the warning that I am installing 32-bit software on a 64-bit machine, but I thought it should work anyway. Do I need the 64-bit? The Mandrake version I used first was 10.1 32-bit, and then I tried the LE 2005 x86-64 edition with the same result. Please help me!
