Installation DVD recieved with a Wiley book on Fedora 8. The DVD has been tested on another computer and works fine.
1. I have changed the boot order in BIOS setup to CDROM drive first.
2. As I restart the computer with the DVD in the drive:
The compaq screen appears.
A black screen appears, with the cursor blinking in upper left corner. The DVD is spinning and the LED ins blinking.
After about 15-20 seconds the DVD stops spinning, the LED goes off and Windows XP starts to boot.
3. PLEASE HELP!
System is a Compaq Presario 5000 Pentium 3. I replaced the CDROM drive with an LG DVD reader/CD writer drive. No other changes. Please also note that a GNOME Live CD works fine.
Expecting definitive answers. Am open to technical language.
