Freeze at "Checking root filesystem"
Before I start, I need to tell you I'm completely new to Linux and I've never had any previous experience with it...
I've recently installed Mandriva Linux 10.1 on to my computer, which is also running Windows XP. Everytime I try to boot up Linux however, it always hangs when it gets to "Checking root filesystem". I've searched for any solutions to my problem by I haven't found one which has helped me, or one I understood. I really want to start using Linux as I've heard it's a great OS, but I can't at the moment cause I can't get it working...
Thanks in advance,
