Angry Mandrake Installation Problems


Hi there boyz & girlz in the wonderful world of that which is known now as "Linux Land"

I am a Linux Newbie, I have never used it before but I have brought the new Mandrake Linux 8.2 as I was told by a friend that it is brillant and is more reliable than "other operating systems".

BUT I have a major problem, everytime I try to install Linux I keep on getting the same message of:

"Second Stage Started
Second Stage Exited Abnormally :-(
Sending KILL Signal
Blah Blah Blah
It is now safe to reboot your machine"

Has anyone got an idea of why this is happening to little old me?

I have tried looking for answers on MandrakeExpert but no luck at all, and when I try to post this question it comes up with the usual "you have no credits please purchase some @ 35USD A Piece".

My system is a:

PCChips M841LR Socket A Motherboard
AMD Duron 1Ghz Processor
256Mb SDRAM
10Gb Exel-Star Hard-Drive
SiS 740 On-board Graphics Card
C-Media AC97 On-board Sound Card
ESS PCI Modem.

Any help will be gladly taken.

Cheers All,
Dave.

First off, Don't Double Post. Read the rules: http://www.linuxquestions.org/rules.php

Second, how the hell you get off posting a Mandrake Install problem in the LFS Forum. This forum has nothing to do with Mandrake.
