Re: newbie can't install 3.1

I don't know much, and figured the best way to learn linux is by
having it. Unfortunately, the installation looked like it only half
succeeded. The gui won't work, and it won't auto-config my network
card (I'm often on a big lan, and windows works). Of that I am
certain, and other things might not work either. I'm seeing a lot of
"blabbedy blah failed to load" or similar in the boot-up process.
Unfortunately, I can't take screenshots to troubleshoot, because I
have to reboot to run windows, the OS where I can get on the internet,
and therefore any possible support. Any help would be most
appreciated. I'm sorry if I'm asking the wrong people, but I just
haven't seen any newbie faqs or mailing lists.
You have not given us any info to help you. Just saying that it does
not work, does not solve the problem. Please give us more info. The
following would be a starting point.
1) From where did you download the installation files?
2) What method are you using to install - floppies/cd images/net
installation image/usb/remote network ...?
3) What is your hardware? What is your network card? What is the
configuration of the system? Is it a desktop or laptop?
We can start from there and figure out what the cause of problem really is!
