Thank you. But, I belive now that mistake was maid, i screw up...long night...
Anyway, I did re-install (and then again)... From what I read on the forum, my instalation shuld be ok now. I chose desktop configuration. Only problem is that, after all of the letters stop flying on the screen, (I guess that then is going to the graphics mode) i got only vertical lines on the screen.
My monitor is fairly old but winxp worked fine on it. Belive that my problem is chosing wrong driver for my video card. As you know, using Dell gx150 - has integrated video.
I will try to search trought the forum about changing video driver on the boot, if that is posible. After systems start, I just hear one beep from the computer and screen goes in "vertical lines" mode. Want to try different ones untill I got picture on the screen. If some of you "pros" know how to do that properly, please let me know before i screw up again and start re-installing for 5th time
I promise that will NOT ask stupid questions as I did in previos posts. Now I should have enough info to start searching by my self.
I just want to see LINUX on the screen (WORKING!!!!
ps. I belive that original option for video driver (when i was installing) was "vesa".
