Unhappy Problem Installing Suse 10, Error 22

I am completely new to Linux. So, I bought a book which comes with a DVD includes SUSE10 in it. My PC hasn't got even windows. I have just done the fix disk and format it to NTFS. I read the book and it said the DVD comes with a YaST program that would partition... everything for me, then I will see the setup screen ... . Well, I thought worth a try, so I insert the DVD and power up the PC. It stayed at Booting from CDROM prompt for sometime, then it display:

GRUB Loading Stage 1.5
Loading Grub, please wait...
Error 22

What is this error? Can anybody help?

According to the grub info pages, error 22 is:
22 : No such partition
     This error is returned if a partition is requested in the device
     part of a device- or full file name which isn't on the selected
Am I right in thinking that the boot process never even got to the YaST installer? (the first stage of this is usually to ask you what language you'd like to use). If so, I'd guess there may be a problem with the CD. Might be worth taking it back to the bookstore and asking for a replacement.


PS - once you get it working, YaST will want to repartition / reformat the disk. Linux won't install on NTFS - YaST will probably suggest the reiserfs file system for the main partition (plus a SWAP partition). Anyway, a basic install (from a working CD) shouldn't cause you any difficulties.

Thanks, you are right. It is a broken DVD. I have got another set of CDs, and it installed and started up smoothly. Except one thing, the text on the deskTop are so small that I cannot read it without a magnifying glass. How can I change the text size ?
