Trying to install DSL on an old Windows 98 PC, screen goes black. Need Help.
My dad asked me to install linux on an old PC he bought at work for $10. It has 256 mb. of Ram, 3.9 GB HDD, and a 333 MHz pentium II processor.
After checking the system requirements for several distributions, I decided DSL would be the best. But my intent is to later install Dreamlinux after making some hardware upgrades.
The Windows 98 on the computer didn't work and I tried a restore disk but it was from a different computer so that also didn't work. So I downloaded DSL and burned the ISO to a cd and put it on the computer. Whenever I get to the install menu it says to press enter to install, so I do that. But then it displays some code on a black background and suddenly it all just goes blank. I also tried DreamLinux and Ubuntu and it didn't work, so I'm guessing theres something wrong with the computer.
How do I go about installing DSL on this system?
Thanks for any help
