I have an HP computer. It's about 8 years old and I used it as a Linux box. It worked GREAT.
Now, I deleted all the partitions and was going to do a full restore with Fedora Core 3.
The problem is, when I pop the CD in, startup and boot, it does a few things, then says it cant find the media on the CDROM and asks me to select another option like web install. So I tried that, it finds the needed files and begins to install and then it stops. I cant remember the error. So, I'm like WTF!!!!
Now I try Knoppix and it wont even let me load that.
Someone suggested bad hardware although I dont think so.
I have never tried to do a web install personally, so I do not know what in all is entered to accomplish that. If you could remember the error it spat out when you tried to do a web install that'd really help =/
