Best Distro For Newbie With Pentium D
I recently installed mandriva 2006 on my old machine to have a little play with it, it all went very smoothly and I really liked what I saw. When I tried to install the same on my new system (see below) it got about 2 seconds past the option to install and errored saying "warning, installation of driver failed (please include msg from <alt-F3> for bugreprts)" everything froze and none of the function keys did anything.
Despite loads of ideas from all the great people on here, I didn't get anywhere with it. I was wondering if anyone knows of a different distro that might run a bit smoother. Ideally someone with the same spec PC as me might know of a distro that worked for them.
My system is
Dell Dimension 5150
Pentium D (dualcore) 2.8
1 SATA 80gb
1 SATA 200gb
NVidia GeForce 256 Graphics card
Thanks in advance!
