2 distro's failed to boot


Well, I give up. I've tried Mandriva 2006 and Fedoro 4 and neither would boot after install.. Mandriva hung at with the last line saying GUMP and fedoro hung after spiting out 0101010100101.. so I am staying on XP =\

Looks like a glitch in the system, I'll close this one and point to the other thread:
