Which menu item?
1) 4MLinux 24.0 with Default Display.
2) 4MLinux 24.0 with VESA Framebuffer.
3) 4MLinux 24.0 Legacy Installer (for old PCs).

Your 4MLinux is installed to a hard disk drive now. Is this so ?
How much RAM does your ASUS EeePC have ?

OK.

Have a look here:
http://4mlinux.com/index.php?page=download

As you can see, 1024 MB of RAM is required for 4MLinux live CD/USB. Your machine has 724 MB, and this is the most probable reason of this buggy installation process.
Repeat the installation choosing Legacy Installer from the menu. It requires only 128 MB of RAM.

Good luck!

I did, but the same results in the Terminal: bath: command not found.
I think when I execute "installer" that the installer "default display" is used.

Legacy Installer does not include bash. It uses BusyBox.

What are you using to install 4MLinux: CD or USB? Have you executed the "installer" command (as instructed in the error message)?

The installation script is trying to find your CDROM, which is, for some reason, not responding.

1) Choose Legacy Installer.
2) Execute "mount /dev/cdrom"
3) Wait a few seconds.
4) Execute "mount" (this will show you if the CD is mounted).
5) Repeat 2,3,4 if needed.
6) When the CD is finally mounted, run the "installer" script.

"mount /dev/cdrom" is not working: no such file or directory.
"installer" is working.
