I want to get rid of windows xp from my computer and install fedora. So, after nearly a day of downloading, I finally get the 4 installation disks, I pop in the first CD
Disk boot failure
. Please help guys. I am desperate to get windows out of my computer.
I read about the SHA1SUM check for the downloaded files but I cant get it to do anything. I tried running it via command prompt but to no avail.
My computer has the following spec:
AMD Sempron 64 2800+ (so I downloaded the fedora for x86_64)
256 DDR ram 266 mhz(i think)
80 gb Seagate IDE hard drive
MSI K8MM-V (or 7142) motherboard
Also I connect to the internet through an ADSL2+ modem which is connected to the computer via a USB port. Its shows up as remote NDIS device.
Please help this linux newbie
