I have two optical drives on this computer. The boot system is seeking data on the empty drive (slaved DVD-ROM) for about 35 seconds before it seeks and finds data on the other drive (master CD-RW). If data were sought on the master drive first, it would be found, but for some reason the Linux-Live script seeks data on slave drive first, wasting 35 seconds.
The login dialog has problems. It seems the password and/or name for user is wrong. On top of that, the name of user is "Vl" which is hard to decipher. Could be VEE-one, VEE-eye, or VEE-el. Same problem for second character of password. Maybe it's obvious that the user and password are vee-el for VectorLinux, but when the password doesnt work, it's an exercise in futility to go through all the possible variations. Since there is a problem with user account, this makes root important, but the password for root isn't shown on the page. I guessed it was lower-case "vector".
I had to manually configure standard network connection after reaching Desktop. The prompt to configure X towards the end of installation was unexpected.
Spontaneous shutdown after 50 minutes continuous operation of liveCD. Ejected empty DVD-ROM drive, powered off with tray still open. Try a PCLOS 2007 liveCD to see shutdown properly done. The tray should come out just before powering off, there should be a little message for user to remove CD then press Enter to shut down,(user presses Enter), after which the tray closes and then the computer immediately powers off.
The default wallpaper looks a lot like Stone Mountain in Georgia, USA.http://rvforsaleguide.com/images/stone-mountain-picture-2.jpg
confirmed: cannot login to user account "Vl"
EDIT: I finally logged in user named "vl" with password "vector". Not sure why this failed before, maybe you get one try and then no-go ( a one-shot login). Also I cut the data seek in half (17 secs) by booting from the slave DVD-ROM.
