I have built my system for gaming but it is now out of date in windows standards, go figure right. I have recently decided to try out linux. I have the FC4 cd's and have had nothing but heartache. I have to turn acpi off and then hook my monitor into the onboard card. Is there anything you can tell me that might help. I keep getting errors that say it could be a hardware issue at the endof my installs.
2x80 G Seagate hds
1xdvdrw+- Cyberhome 16x dual layer
1xcdrw 48x HP
SBlive sound card
Geforcefx 5200 with 256mb ram
I have had no problems with windows running my hardware, but I would like to switch to linux soon.
I am currently downloading Mandrake 10 official. Is this a better way to go? any help will be appreciated. Thanks
