Install DreamLinux 1.2.1= any experience

I have been very fascinated by the XFCE4 DE, and while reading distrowatch came across this small distro called DreamLinux from Brazil. The studio version comes in English as well, which I downloaded. Its a live CD and can install to HDD. So i tried installing it: but came to a point when it would not load the boot loader; I was basically sitting without any OS (I have dual boot). So, because I know Ubuntu worked for me, I installed that and I was back in bussiness.

I was wondering if anyone also had any experince with this distro, and if they were able to go beyond my step and install the boot loader.

They have a forum, but it is in, yes, you guessed it, Portuguese.

Or do you know where to get help for this really appealing distro.

Have you checked in the Linux - Distributions forum. There is also the Distro Reviews. I haven't checked to see if this particular distro is in there or not.

Post the details of the problem to me and I will translate them into Portuguese and submit them to the distro maintainers.

I have already contacted them to join their team as an english translator.

Please be as specific as you can regarding the problems you had with the install.
