xandros install problem


hi everyone!

i just got meself an iso of xandros desktop version 3.. i inserted it in my cd drive.. i installed it... it needs a reboot... now after the reboot, it stops at a prompt which says something about a bash-like line editing so i press "tab" and it displays the possible commands.. so i type "boot" , it says "the kernel must be loaded first".... so i type "kernel", it says something about absolute filename or something like that... what do i do now?? used to install RH9 a couple of times and had no problems like this...

Maybe try installing it again, to me, it sounds like something went wrong. I don't really understand the post above but a FAT partition is windows, what you want is a Linux Partiton
