Typical problem while installing Linux Mint 7. I cant see a GUI interface.Please help
this is the first time i am installing a linux distro.
when i boot from the linux mint 7 CD (which is also a live CD), it boots perfectly and shows the screen where there is a bar moving (and a message showing 'from freedom came elegance'). but after that a command prompt (sumthing titled as busybox and ash...)appears instead of a gui desktop (from where i could've got the install button). it is allowing me to type into that promt. I could not find solution 2 this on any site.
I'm already having Windows XP (service pack 2) on C drive. i wished to have dual-booting. I'm having a P-IV 1.7 GHZ, 512 MB Ram. I dont have a separate video card. i've on board agp (intel 82845 G/GL/GE...). I'm desperate 2 try linux. plz help.
(Also while in windows when i access the CD, there is a program called mint4win. When i specify the drive and USERNAME/PSWD and proceed, it asks for internet connection (which i'm temporarily not having at home).
