Hi Danny. Thanks for such a nice quick reply. I purchased emachines T3508 desktop and it has celeron 3.33 GHz processor, Ati radeon xpress 200 graphics and built in sound card and 512 DDR memory. My laptop is Toshiba satellite a-105. I tried Redhat 7.2, fedora core 5 and mandriva 10 (I believe)and when I start my pc after loading the installation cd, the installation starts with hardware probing and then it freezes. If you could give me any idea how to solve this, that'd be great.
