Ok - found the problem but have no idea what goes wrong.
There are only 11 mb on the cd after burning it - iso is 38 mb.
I did burn it with k3b and after that tried with cdrecord.
Both show that they burn 38 mb but they don't.
If I burn the boot.iso instead of the bootbf2.4.iso everything is fine
except that I couldn't install on reiser with it.
Anybody has an idea what is wrong here?
Sounds like something is going wrong in the burning process. Dunno
what, and it is extremely puzzling since you can burn other "working"
isos without problems.
I just d/l both isos and mounted them via the "loop" function and they
both seem OK from visual inspection.
I did mount them,too.Something is already screwed up then.
Real strange - I just installed mandrake and try it with the tools there.
If that doesn't work I'll install it with the regular boot CD.
Thanks a lot for your help.
Ah-ha! If you mounted the d/l iso files, and they were screwed up, then
it looks like a bad download! THAT will mess things up! I didn't see
any md5sums at the site that you could use to check. If it would help,
here are the md5sums generated from my machine on each file after I
I can't guarantee these are "good" since I have not burned these isos
and sucessfully booted them, but they looked OK on visual inspection.
Holler if I can help again... Good Luck!
