I am a newbie to Linux trying to get it working on my HP Laptop Pavilion zt1230. I have tried three versions of Linux-Insert, Beatrix, and Knoppix. They fail to boot on my laptop with the checksum error message. The distribution restore CD boots fine so it probably is not the drive. These programs boot fine on two other machines, emachines, that I have. Insert and Beatrix were downloaded and burned to CD; Knoppix is a CD obtained in the mail. Help.
