hello.  i just downloaded pardus after watching it on distrowatch for some time now.  it's been very intriguing.  i finally downloaded it and wiped out my mandriva installation only to find that i can't get the installation cd to be recognized on boot.  i've never had this problem before and i've installed many different os's on this laptop this year alone.

is there a special way i need to burn the image to disc?  i've tried burning it using several different programs including some on my windows xp desktop.

i'm trying a different type of media as i type this so if it works i'll let you know.

in the meantime, i would appreciate any advice i can get, as the temporary foresight install i put on here is pretty lackluster.

thanks! Grin

ok i burned it to a different medium and all is well now.  i am writing this from my new pardus install.  Grin

apparently i had to use a dvd instead of a cd.  what a waste but at least it worked..
