type in root (that is at the login prompt which you end up at) then hit enter
type in toor (that is your password) then hit enter
type in gui to open the gui then hit enter.

When you downloaded the iso, did you check the md5sums?

Go here if you need to know how to do that.

hi

yes i checked the md5checksum and it was correct

i just tried again didnt work and these are the last lines it says :

Mounted devfs on /dev
Freeing unused kernel memory : 120 k freed

01.00: rw=0, want=12386305, limit=7777

All I can suggest at the moment is to try on a different pc/laptop and see if the problem follows you. That would narrow it down to being a disc or machine problem.

i m gr8 04-16-2004 03:33 PM

ok willl try on the other pc at my home in sometime and post the result back here

thanks :)

Sounds as though your disk is the problem.

I'd suggest reburning the iso, but at a slower speed.
