It's an old PIII, 450mhz, 128 megs of RAM, 10.3 gig hard drive, ATAPI CD-ROM. I'm a total Linux noob, so be gentle.
It gets far enough along that it finishes base installation, but then tells me that initrd-tools failed to install. That's it, that's all. And I can't proceed without it. Nothing besides that.
I read it might be overheating, but nope, this old bird is colder than an ice cream freezer. I even gave it a thorough rubdown with Mr Compressed Air to be sure. My efforts were met with the bleakest failure.
Can anyone help?
