I've got a 32bit pc without windows installed and want to install openSUSE 11.0 without having to install xp first. My SUSE dvd works ok in a pc that has xp installed but wont install on the 32 bit pc - error no boot disk found. Any help please.
GNU/Linux (and any other OS) doesn't need XP to boot neither to install! It certainly that your PC want to boot on the hard drive, just go into the BIOS setting by pressing DEL, F2, or F10 key when the PC start, and set it to boot from CD-ROM.
