Re: Potato CD doesn't seem bootable
Maybe the cheap bytes people, the storm people, (me), and the FTP people are
all having the same problem because the original official files are
corrupted. This is sort of like a fission virus. Here is what i have been
sending out. Cheers, Cliff
I tried to install the Storm Linux 2000 Starter Edition from the CD and got
as far as *Installation Source*. I chose CD and clicked NEXT. I got a dialog
box which read, *No CD-ROM was detected*. The dialog box only has an OK
option. Interesting as I could have not gotten that far without it
recognizing the CD-ROM. Any ideas?. Cheers, Cliff
