    Actually I tried it again recently after the power surge from the hurricanes and now it dosn't know what the hell its doing. I'm going to format the hard drive and start over from scratch.

    By the way, the "NO ROM BASIC SYSTEM HALTED" bit occurs when the system can't find a bootable partition and tries to load a Basic program so that the system still has some functionality. However, most newer systems (Post-80s) don't have a Basic version built into their ROM, and so the BIOS fails trying to load it. I have only happened upon this problem on an ancient laptop, so I'm surprised that 73RMIN8R even stumbled upon this remnant of computer history. What kind of motherboard do you have?? Good luck with Yoper, it's a good distro, but Gentoo's better. :P

    I'm not sure of the mother board's history. All I know is that it is indeed old, but it as been upgraded many times. Mabe it's just incompatable. I'll try it on my other computer. I'll also see about using that other distro that you mentioned.
