Older system does not (seem to) recognize iso files
I have an antiquated compaq (Win 98, 8GB HD, 128 ram, 350 MHz processor) which I would like to use to "test drive" DSL. I downloaded it to CD & tried to open it from the desktop, no success - windows asks me what to use to open it (nothing in the list works). I also tried restarting with the CD in the drive - still nothing. Oh, yeah, and I also tried DOS, with no result.
Strange thing - I don't get any screen offering BIOS or Setup.
However, when I tried running the FC1 that I purchased, it worked fine (booted up to install screen) until it informed me that my hardware wasn't good enough for FC1.
I know, the answer should probably be obvious. Can anyone help me out?
