Boot problems with MandrakeMove

First off.. I am new a all aspects of Linux, but Mandrake seemed the best choice for a beginner. Anyway, mandrakeMove seemed logical because I coul d test it out with out any harddrive commitment.


boots fine to the splash screen (enter to boot, F1 for options).. I hot enter and it loads the three processess or parts... then it say "processing please wait ..."

After that 2 distinct errors happen:

1. It does some sort of trace routine with my Cd-ROm which ends in an EID error and then it just sits there...

2. It says something about not being about to create file systems.. sends a kill code then gives a message saying I can safely reboot or halt system. I have tried some of the F1 options like noauto, but the same thing happens...

I have an HP 1.2gzh Machine, 256 ram , ATI card with 32megs, 40x cd-rom, intel onboard sound card... oh the processor is a Celeron...

Any suggestions should be helpful... becasue I am clueles as to what to do next.

PS... It says it is booting the Dec 17, 2003 ISOLINUx..if that means anything... I just got the ISO of a current mirror... soo.. what's next..

Thanks For you Time.../

Since you are new to Linux I suggest that you don't spin your wheels trying to debug MandrakeMove. Instead try one of the other Linux Live CDs like Knoppix or SuSE Live CD. See if you can find one that works on your hardware without any hassle.

Be prepared. Create a LifeBoat CD.
