Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Ok went thru the forums and serached for the same issue. i ave a dell latitude d610 with ati 300 dispaly drivers.
Install will go all the way to configure display and hang. Have to reboot to get machine working. thought it was a faulty instal of mandriva one 2006 so burnt another disk to no avail. i have instaled mandriva one ok on my other machines so im stumped about this issue. btw i have the latest bios for this machine.

still no luck
the worst thing is that i like mandriva and the other distros will boot from the live cd even if they are not using the ati drivers
So instruct me oh Mandriva Guru! on how to boot from command using the live cd.(bows low)
Distribution: Mandriva mostly, vector 5.1, tried many.Suse gone from HD because bad Novell/Zinblows agreement
insert cd and type rescue <enter> to go in rescue mode
cannot remember the menus then, but you should have some,
go around until you find one for the graphic driver, set it to i810
(test vesa as well)
If there is no menu, drop to command line and type
A blue window will appear with choices, select video (do as above)
If this does not work,
reboot and remove cd,
reboot with boot command single
when you see sh#
to become root
Let us know how this goes
Suggestion 3) is single mode + learning vim (an editor) to edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Suggestion 4) in single mode run xorgcfg or xorgconfig
