Hey all. I'm trying to install Vector Linux and I'm running into a bit of a problem.
I downloaded and burned the 5.9 Standard iso to a CD and I am installing it on a Dell Cpi D300XT laptop with an 18GB hard drive and 128 MB of RAM (BIOS version A12). I chose the default kernel (it looks like that is the only one available) and I got to the point where it says "Finding Vector Linux install media". The install stops here - I've let it go for about ten minutes and it doesn't proceed. I can hear the CD drive spin for a few minutes, pause, then start spinning again. Also, if I type anything on the keyboard it will show up as either letters or the key codes (for example, down arrow puts "^[[B") at the bottom of the screen.
I turned off Power Management in the BIOS, but that didn't help.
If I use the CD on my considerably newer eMachines or a Virtual PC 2007 virtual machine, it quickly returns with the prompt to confirm the installation media, so it looks like the CD is working.
Any help appreciated. Thanks.
