Installation process came up, went through fdisk, created my partitions root was 3.5 gigs, 1 gig swap, and the rest as extended partition. Picked my source media, target partition and selected full install, in about 4 seconds it said installation complete restart computer with ctrl alt dlt. Needless to say the os wasn't there, and I still had 3 other installation cd's.
Does anyone know what I did wrong? This was done with slackware 10.1, maybe I should try 11? bad burn?
any links or help would be appreciated
I had that happen once with a bad CD. I would suggest you try 11, it is the best Slackware release yet. I have been using Slackware since 8 or was it 8.1.
I installed pclinuxos, I think I'll dled 11 tonight and burn it. My first experience on pclinuxos is kind of bittersweet, on the one hand, out of the box, it does mroe than windows ever could, but the finer details are killing me, you wouldn't happen to have a good link for learning how to use command line would you?
