I need help, this is my first try at linux and i'm lost. i downloaded an iso file and wrote it to cd. i'm trying to install Mandriva 2006 for i586. when i put it into my laptop to boot it goes through all the steps, but then it just says
with the cursor flashing after this. it stays like that for a few moments, then my screen just goes blank. any ideas as to what i need to do next?
i'd appreciate any ideas and tips.
