Question Strange Slack Install Problem


I installed Slack 8.1 and 9 on my desktop no problem. Now, I wanted to install it on my laptop. However, neither the bootdisk *or * the bootable cd work. Any suggestions? Currently, the BIOS is set to boot from CD-Rom and the system is running RH7. Please, don't tell me that I am stuck with RedHat!

Never mind...
I don't know what was wrong, but I just kept rebooting it with the CD inside and finally it worked...oh well, mysteries of the unexplained...
