Default Re: Linux boot error

Have you run a tool like G Parted to look at the partitions in your system? Delete them all. Sounds like a problem with your CD drive in the system?

If you want those tools, get them seperately. Install a distro the original way and then, install the software for whatever you're going to do.

If most is RPM, just reember this: rpm -ivh file://yourfolderurl/

Use -nodeps if you want to bypass dependency check,
