problems booting livediscs: mepis,slax,bailisk
I'm completely new to this and want to start with live discs. My problem is, I can't get any of them to boot properly.
Simply Mepis: proceeds through some start menus, then sticks on a scrolling "signal detected again" message,
Slax: gets stuck on "Activating hardware detection:/etc/rc.d/rc.hotplug start"
Basilisk: sticks on a blue screen with the cursor scrolling dots, left to right, down the screen
Any ideas why none of these are working?
