I created the 5.8 Gold CD, and used it to launch into a VectorLinux installation on a PIII 933MHz 128Mb machine. I followed all the step and made all the smart choices, and I was really excited when instructed to take the CD out of the drive to boot up the new os... reboot? HELL YES!... "Error loading operating system." Um, what? ... That's all, a blank screen with one line: "error loading operating system". An hour's work for naught. Argh!
OK, so anyone have any idea where I might have gone wrong. I partitioned what I believe to be a 20G drive into 19.5 for Linux, and .5 for swap. Is that not reasonable? I accepted mostly the defaults. No network. What gives?
What do I do next? Re-install? How do I know that I won't make the same mistake again? Oh, this is really frustrating. Any advice would so be appreciated.
