I had an old computer lying around-- an IBM Valuepoint 486 w/ 8 meg ram,
about a 700 meg hd. Installed a cd rom and thought I would give the Linux
discs I had lying around a try. From what I understood, though it wouldn't
be a mean machine, I thought this configuration would allow me to at least
Wiped Windows 3.1 off, tried booting from the Linux boot disk. It proceeds
for a while, says it is:
"Running Anaconda .... this may take a while",
"Install exited abnormally- received signal 9"
"Sending termination signals ..... done"
/mnt/source unmount failed (16)
"You may safely reboot your system"
And that's it. What am I doing wrong? I've read faqs til my eyes bled, read
through _Teach Yourself Linux_, and I still have no idea what the problem is
TIA, I know this is a pain in the ass ........
