Well, I didn't give up!
wbkelly same exact here! When installing second cd into cd drive I was getting same error. Sooo finally..When given the option to load data from the cd's onto hard drive. I chose to not load any except first disc and the loading process went through to completion!
I have used a few distros from cd already. Not much but a little.
I am such a
that I am not really sure which way to go. all the distros had a graphical interface. So the text is pretty new to me. Honestly having done nothing but the other operating system. I have been getting confused easily.
I am not going to give up here. I will keep working with different distros and such learning as I go. Currently I am downloading Debian so I can follow the online training course. I do have a fully functional Suse 10.2 machine. least I think its fully functional. (I have 2 of the others operating systems set up next to 2 machines with intent of being able to learn until I get compotent.
Back to Mandriva, I will keep watching and learning until I can get Mandriva running. I am really wanting the RAID Drivers it has for my mainboard. When I begin loading Mandriva it comes up and shows its seeing the RAID hard drive controller. So this is a plus for me with Mandriva!
Thanks for the advice and I will keep watching and learning.
