    Hello and Welcome
    Did you reboot the machine with the CD in the drive or something? What type of program are you trying to install?

    It sounds like you're dropping to a busybox shell.

    What distro are you trying to boot? Is this after the install or from the live CD (assuming you're using a live CD)?
