    Booting Slax


    I'm having trouble booting slax from a live cd.

    All I'm getting is Disk Error 32, AX=42A3, Drive 9f

    I am a complete nOOb to linux and slackware.
    I just wanted something besides windows.

    PLZ HELp

    thanx,

    MAtt

    I'll take a stab at it.

    Without knowing more, I'd guess you have a corrupted CD. At what speed did you burn it? Does the error message come up at a certain point during boot up? Does it come up in that same place every time? Did you do a md5sum check tp make sure the ISO was the right size before burning?

    If the md5sum does not check out, you'll need to re-download the ISO and make sure it is the correct size. Good Luck.

    Agreed... sounds like bad media, or a bad burn to me, too. Try burning at a slower speed if the ISO checksum is good.

    thanx
    I did burn it a bit high (40x)
    What speed is the best?

    I'll try reburning it.
    If that don't work I'll redownload it.

    Thanx a whole bunch

    I never burn over 14x. It takes a little longer, but to me it's worth it if you can avoid a bad burn.

    thanx

    I think it was a bad burn, the cd-r was new.

    As it turns out I had it deleted after what I thought was a sucessfull burn.

    Which means I have to download it, again.

    Oh well, what I now know helps alot.

    Thanx to all

    Matt
