I just received a Dell T5500 workstation. When I tried to install OpenSUSE 12.1 64 bit OS on the computer using a DVD. The installation "froze" in the middle of copying files. When I tried to do a "media Test", I never got to see the testing screen, only the OpenSUSE splash screen.
I then tried an Ubuntu installation CD- it even did not get to installation window.
However, this computer came with MS Windows 7 installed, which, I wiped out during linux installation.
Any suggestion? graphics card is nVidia Quardo 5000. Could it be possible to the installer does not have driver for the graphics card?
Any suggestion will be appreciated.

I know that Ubuntu offers two installation discs: the standard one is purely graphical, the "alternative" one allows you to specify text mode. Many other distros give you the choice on the standard installation disc, and some install in text mode only (which is usually much more reliable)."I'm just a little old lady; don't try to dazzle me with jargon!"
