Blank screen when installing Mandrake on Toshiba Laptop
I am new to Linux and attempted to load Mandrake on my Toshiba laptop. Within Windows XP, I used partition Magic to create a new partition for Linux and place it ahead of the existing partition. On first boot, I allowed the PC to boot from CD, which was the #1 Linux disk. It asked if I wanted to hit enter to install or F1 for other options. I have tried almost all the text and graphical options, and my screen is completely blank. The bad news is its my wife's PC so I am finding bedding for the couch, where I'll be until I get this fixed.
