I stole this computer from my grandmother and thought I'd install Linux. Why not learn a new thing?
CPU: Pentium III 450 MHZ
Motherboard: Microstar MS-6163
Display Adaptor: ATI 3D Rage pro
I tried to install a couple of Linux distributions on it: Red-Hat 9.0 and Mandrake 10.1
What happens on both Installations is:
1. I Get the first screen telling me to press <ENTER> to install.
2. The installation is telling me loading…. Whatever…
3. The screen does that 'pling' sound (like the one when switching to a 3D game mode).
4. I get a blank screen – end of story.
I tried to install it in all the other modes – text, expert, kernel etc… but nothing – same scenario.
Any Idea where to start looking?
