Toshiba Satellite 4060 install problems with Fedora 4, RH9 & Slack 10.2
I have a Toshiba Satellite 4060 laptop. Intel P2 333mhz, 128mb ram 4.0gb hard drive.
I first tried installing Fedora Core 4 (what the rest of my linux machines is running) but it freezes up as soon as the GUI loads for install (have not tried text install yet being a newbie).
So then I tried Red Hat since it is a bit older. Everything installs fine until I have to switch to disk 2. I did the media check and all 3 disks checked out fine. But when it prompts me to insert disk 2 (and I do) I get a "can not mount CD" error message. I tried redownloading the .ISOs and reburning them and remedia checking them, with the same results. When I tried to reinstall it looks like linux is installed already and asks if I want to upgrade. But if I try and boot I get a disk error.
Now for something totally different, I tried slackware 10.2. This won't ever get past the post screen (its just a red screen that says TOSHIBA).
If anyone has a suggestion as to a remedy or an older distro that might work. I have a feeling the distros I'm using are just too new for this old klunker, but being new to linux (and laptops) I wanted something semi new.
