DREAMLINUX won't install

Hi all! I am new to Linux and have been playing with a few versions for the past month. So far I like opensuse 11.1 the most. Anyway..... Recently I attempted to install Dreamlinux. After watching it run varoius files directly to the hard drive ( in a root mode ) for about 4 mintues I was then asked for a passwrod. Of course siince I was never taken to a setup screen I was never able to give it a password. Hence I could never get by this portion of the install.

Any sugestions would be helpful ~

How did you attempt to install - start at the beginning.
How your experience of the install differ from:

There are two possible issues here:

First, installer integrity. Try check the downloaded image iso file with the given md5sum, see to it that the integers are identical.

Second, the installation process went bad. Let me suggest you should reformat the partition to host DreamLinux then redo clean install.

Caveat: If option to activate or not a "root" account is offered the safer choice for a beginner is to "disable" root account. However, if you wanted to gamble activating it you should "write down" the password to avoid missing it when needed.

Hope this helps.

Good luck and enjoy.

Hi, well I found out with a google search that I could use the user name " dreamer " and the password was " dream " However the reason why this option was given was because Dreamlinux did not recognize my onboard video. I find this odd as I am using a board with the Radeon HD 3200. ( only 3 months old ) I attempted to follow the instructions and load the driver through xorg. But I keep getting referred back to the screen that tells me Dreamlinux cannot find my graphic driver. I have never been able to launch into the DE. So I don't have a clue what to do wit it. I am was using the XFCE version of Dreamlinux, and I have downloaded and burned it to a cd 3 times. I might try using GNOME and see what happens.
