I am installing RH 6 on a Pentium 75. Booting on the boot floppy is not a
problem. It identifies the CD ROM Drive (Panasonic/Scoundblast CR) but then
it has problems reading the CD ROM. It tries in lots of 3, I think gets to
line blah thousand then just does that over and over and over, layer etc.
I have read and re-read all the Specs and checked all the RH faq's and
Master guides but have found no answer.
I am using a CD that a friend made not the RH official stuff but their
installation was fine using it.
Any ideas? I am not too into the idea of trying a hard drive install. I
tried the DOS method and the DOS prompt would not change to d: at the boot
stage although it will find d: once you have windows up.
Should I try another Linux distro?
