want to install Mandriva over Ubuntu
I hope you don't think I am hi jacking this thread, but its the only topic I have found pertaining to my problem, so I thought i could keep it alive a little longer.
As per redredred, I want to install Mandriva over Ubuntu. I am new to linux and to wean myself onto it, I have it dual booted on my Vista machine.
Mandriva disk goes in,(this is the second copy I've downloaded in case the disk was my problem, it is not), I am given no options, it "BOOTS" mandriva from the start. I was a little suprised at this as Ubuntu gave me options.
It stops to tell me I have an issue with my video card, quick fix. I change the resolution and on we go. I set up language, keyboard, time zone, and then It brings me to a log on screen. I press enter without entering anything, it prompts me for name and password. I enter name and password I had configured for Ubuntu. I thought maybe the two were talking to each other. No go, nothing I enter will let me pass.
Any ideas or suggestions on how I get passed this?
A million thanks in advance for any and all replies.
