I'm attempting to install Mandrake 8.2 on my Laptop (4G hard drive, 1 partition, 1 swap), but every time I attempt, I receive an error of some sort. I have no automatic package selector, and I can only install individual files via the flat view. The few times I've managed to get to 100% install (due to the error on Commercial Apps Disc 2, my system freezes) I receive an error message. I attempted text install, with minimal installation, but I received a message that nothing was selected. I managed to get an old Corel Linux OS from 2000 installed, but it is grainy, slow and not able to access any of my peripheral hardware, like CD-ROM, Sound Card, etc.
Should I give up on Mandrake, or can anyone tell me how to get it to install?
