Trouble installing Corel Linux

Well ive just bought a copy of Corel Linux, and now i ofcourse want to install it. But here is the thing, when i try to boot from my cd the installation starts as it is supposed to, but at some point the installaion wants to load "graphical interface" and instead of doing so my cd tray just opens causing my labtop to restart in windows mode...

Anybody had the same problem? or does anybody have an idea as to what i might do to solve it?

Are you sure you mean Corel Linux? Corel was discontinued years ago when Xandros bought them out. Corel makes word processors and other software, but not a Linux distribution. If it is Corel Linux is is going to be very out of date: distros last 6 months to a year, with upgrades possible from version to version, but Corel is discontinued.

If you need an install disk, some magazines have Suse or Ubuntu included recently. Also, to help you we need to know what speed the computer is, how much RAM it has, and what the video card is.

Good luck.
