problem with loading mandriva live cd on my system
 
I am new to linux so sorry if this sounds stupid but when loading mandriva live cd a list comes up ending with press enter to boot but when i press enter this comes up
-sh: can;t access tty; job control turned off

I was wondering if anyone can help me with this problem. thanks in advance.

Trust me, this is not a stupid question!

It sounds like your CD may be corrupted. Did you do a md5sum check after you downloaded it? Right click on the ISO and select "md5su" and then compare that with the sum supplied at the download site.

Second thought would be to determine that you have the CD in the CD reader. Some computers (mine) can't load some Live CD's from the DVD drive.

Good luck and don't let my weak answer discourage you-lots of others will follow.

Before the cant access tty error comes up several mount and directory errors are reported saying that they all failed.
