  1. The day wish I install Linux on my computer must written in the history book ! Because all my problems go away with Windows.
    1000 of Thanks to the Linux community.

  2. I have downloaded the disk iso so many times I cant even tell you! It will NOT open on either of my two pc’s. I have the cdrom booting first, and the hard drive 4th on both. Nothing happens on either when I shut down with the cd in the cdrom drive. What am I doing wrong? I didnt have any problems when I did the identical thing with the iso I burned from Ububtu. Do you have to have lousy windows just to get the disk to work? I am attempting to run a second linux syatem on the same pc, with two hard drives. WHere am I going wrong. Please keep it simple in lay terms I can follow as I am no genius when it comes to these things. Thanks in advance.
