Installation problems!

Ive tried to install slackware 9.1, and it will run through the disk 1 install stuff, and then it never asks for disk 2... and goes on to ask what environment I want to use, and Gnome, KDE, etc are not listed there, only xfce, slackbox, and the like. I tried twice and got the same result both times, and am at a loss for what to do.

Also, Windows XP does not list in Lilo. How can I fix this?

Thanks for your time.

Don't know about slack install.

search the newbie and software forums for "lilo" - there have been MANY questions about bootloader setup.

Okay, got the distribution installed. Now I am only having trouble with my mouse. I have the Logitech MX Cordless Duo, and when I enter KDE, it only allows me to move the mouse up and down (and not very well at that) and it will not go left or right at all. Is there any way to fix this?

What did you do?


What did you do to fix your mouse? I've got the same problem with my USB wireless Intellimouse!
