Hey, I just built a new computer a couple days ago, and I decided to use linux! So I got everything put together, went to my friends house, downloaded and burnt Mandrake to a cd, brought it home, popped it in and it started up! I'm at the first 'hit f1 for options/hit enter to install or upgrade' screen, so I'm thinking all is good. I hit enter, the blue bar at the bottom starts filling up. It gets to about 90% completed and then it crashes, and sends me to a screen with a whole lot of errors, among them being:
"Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address 0006e000"
and then, at the bottom of the page
<0>Kernel panic: Attempted to kill init!
I also tried writing the cdrom.img to a floppy disk, and it comes up with the same errors. So either the image is corrupted or something else is wrong. Can anyone help?
Edit: I tried the cd on another computer, and the setup ran just fine, so I'm thinking it may be a problem in the bios or something else. any help would be great!
