Smile STOP @ sh-2.05# Mandrakelinux


The installation of Mandrakelinux ends succesfull but when i reboot and choose linux i get the blue screen with ' booting etc'. -> black screen forever.
Reboot again en i choose 'failsafe' : the pc stops @ sh-2.05#.

I tried everything already. I installed it on a Pentium 1 (compaq Deskpro) and it worked fine.


So why won't it work on my Pentium 4 3ghz 1 gb ram.?
