I tried to install pardus on my old pc without any luck

It has an  AMD-K6-2 400MHz processor and an ATI mach64 videocard
memmory is 384 Mb big and winXP worked nicely.

In configurationmode I chose the option for the  videokaart "AUTO" as wel as "ON SYSTEM" but with no succes.
The live cd  didn't work either. both cd's did work on another pc.

I only get to see the screens for choosing standard mode or other
 and for choosing a language.

After that it re-boots and I can choose everything again. and again and again.

I saw texts like      "loading stage 2"   and    "(hd44) filesystemtype is iso 9660 using whole disc"

Is their a solution to my problem?

I had a similar problem.I chose English as my install language than I chose '' Minimal Installation'' as far as I remember .Then the installation started.Burn the iso  on a good cd with 32x or less (not 52x because there may be faults) and try minimal install.Hope you come over it  Wink

I gues pardus is too heavy for this PC. I installed Xubuntu and is works just fine. (still some minor problems with other software/plug-ins)
Have still some doubt to install pardus on my newer pc, on a partition of it's own, next  to XP as a double booting system. (after all, XP works allright for me.)
Is their anyone to confins me of the advantages to do so??

"loading stage 2"   and    "(hd44) filesystemtype is iso 9660 using whole disc"

Those are normal.  I've seen them with my installs of Pardus.  Try the minimum install.  You can get xfce to work with Pardus, it just takes some configuration.  If I can find it, Eren had a very good walk through on getting xfce to work.

There is an option to partition your hard disk manually.  I recommend using a live cd and making a partition that you can install Pardus on as well as a swap partition.  Choose the minimum install (if you haven't already).  When you get to the partitioning screen, choose to manually partition.  Just keep track of all your partitions!  Hopefully it won't freeze up.
