Comments/Problems: I downloaded the business card CD image of squeeze, burned it to a
normal (750 Mb) CDROM. Squeeze installed smoothly, but upon reboot I got
the error message "no boot disk".

I previously installed lenny and it ran just fine.

I finally fled back to Microsoft so I could enjoy the benefits of Dropbox. I really want to run Linux, though.
