I'm installing mandriva 2010 on an old computer (AMD 2000+, 256 megs of
ram (maybe 512 if I can find another stick)) and not having any luck.
When I boot from DVD, it dies at varying points. Sometimes right away,
sometimes it reads for a bit then dies, sometimes I get the initial
install screen then it dies with something like "isolinux: disk error
I'm reasonably sure that the dvd is fine - I've used it for installing
numerous systems. I'm suspecting something in my old hardware. Any
ideas on where to start diagnosing?
