Re: uninstall Debian Linux

    I believe the cd I am installing from may be faulty. I made a boot disk
from it and it does the same thing when booted from.
    I get no messages to reply to.
    Tried the Debian boot cd and Linux booted to it alright.
    The Fedora cd came in a book I bought at barns & Nobles. I had gone
there to buy a Debian book but found none. It took me all afternoon to pick
out the Fedora book.  The had 6 books on the shelf. That kind of thing will
hurt Debian if many book stores do that.
