    Hello and Welcome!

    You may want to try another boot option. When you get the splash screen, hit either F1 or F2 to get these options. I think the one you might want to try is acpi=off. Been a while since I ran DSL, so double check that this option is present.

    Thanks.....I finally figured it out yesterday.

    New problem....I need to load drivers for my wireless card but do not know how to make a file. Right now they are on a thumb drive connected to the computer I am using. I have been reading all day on tutorials but it is hard trying to read and then switch back to live cd to try what I read.

    While wireless isn't my strong point, here is a how-to for wireless connections.

    I get the driver to install but it says it is invalid driver. From reading forums it seems my belkin F5D7010 and the broadcom driver bcmwl5.inf cause a conflict. I need to know how to force the driver.Use the installed driver for devid? Use the -a or-d command to do this? How do I input the code.....I tried ndiswrapper -d bcmwl5.inf and it just comes back with the list of commands.Do I need to use the pciid xxxxxxx in the command line somehow?

    Well... Like I said, I'm not much on wireless. But I do have a suggestion. Since the original issue for this thread was an installation issue, and that's been pretty much covered, why not start a new thread in the 'Wireless' portion of the Forum? There are a couple of experienced members here who just jump on wireless problems!
