Sorry, but is anyone going to help me out?
I tried the bootdisc on an older Compaq Presario with Win98 installed and it works fine, but on my ~6-year old HP Pavilion with Windows XP it just stalls. The only reason I can find for this would obviously be my cd-writer is cobbled up, but I don't know why this would be the case and plus, it is able to read the media... it just halts prematurely.
On the Compaq I get to a point where Debian appears to cache the files to a logical a: drive and I am presented with some options (eg: /mlk). Is it possible that Debian is unable to cache the files to memory..? I can't see why this would be the case, either, and plus, supposedly it doesn't cache them until the user types dpms /***.
I don't know what is going on... Any ideas?
