Robert, Thank-you for your reply. I will sign up and see if I can send you a private message. I know I must be doing something wrong and I am waiting to receive a 2007 Linux Bible I ordered thru Amazon. I am trying to install it on a computer I have dedicated (no windows os) just dedicated for me to learn the linux operating system. The computer is a 1.6 ghz pentium 4, 750 mb ram with 30 gig of hard drive. I was able to operate a few of the linux "live" systems but when trying to install many different "flavors" nothing but various errors. I have installed Windows operating systems: radio shack tandy 1000, msdos, freedos, 3.1, 3.11, 95, 98, 98se, 2000, 2000 professional, xp home and never had the problems installing before. I just wish linux was easier to install. I have even gone so far as to change hard drives everytime I try a different flavor of linux. (just in case that was my error in installing linux).
