Re: Cannot install Linux on laptop
I have installed Linux on a different computer several different times, but I just
can't seem to get past the initial loading of the kernel at the very begining. As
I said earlier, my ThinkPad reboots itself when it tries to load the Kernel. Then
it repeats the process over and over again. I have tried using the different
images that come on the Binary CD, and although not surprising they didn't work. I
checked out the web and I have found nothing, anymore ideas...?
