Linux Mandrake 9 Install?
Posted 09 February 2003 - 05:11 AM
I burn the install ISO on a CD-RW I know works (cause I used it to install EvoX.) When my box boots up my blue "XBox" (from my colormod BIOS) appears, then the Tux graphic appears and covers the "XBox" then my XBox freezes and the LED goes solid orange.
I've heard it supposed to go orange because Linux is loading into memory.
I tried installing debian linux and it loaded up. I didn't want to finish the intstall because I can't figure out if it can be installed to f: like mandrake can, and from what I can tell I'm supposed to connect the box to the internet to download the rest of the install files (like the GUI)
I chose Mandrake because it seemed so simple, but now I can't get the damn thing to load!
Anyone have any suggestions/help?

Why do you want it on F: ?
If you have the original Seagate 10Gig, then OK, but otherwise put it on E:
And yes, Ed's Debian CAN go on either E: or F:

I think he wrote it for 0.0.1 but it is basically the same process. And yes you can install to either E: or F:.....they call E: the 'game partition'.....WARNING: If you install to the F: drive it will overwrite any files on there
