I've downloaded the FC3 ISOs and burnt them to CD very excited about installing Linux for the first time ever. I popped the first cd into the cdrom, turned on the pc and let it boot from the cd. Instead of an installation screen I get something like this:
Nvidia Boot Agent PXE-2.0. bla bla bla
Client MAC Address bla bla bla bla bla bla
Searching for DHCP .....
(I may have some wording slightly wrong in the above)
It never finds a DHCP server and after a while just ends and I get the standard message about cannot boot from drive please insert boot disk - the harddrive has nothing on it. it's been wiped clean.
I've read through these forums and can't find anything useful except to try burning the cds at a slower speed. I've tried that, even used a different burning program with no difference. Anyone have any other suggestions as to what could be wrong?
- some other info: If I try to boot with a harddrive containing an OS it skips the boot cd, despite the fact that it's set to boot from cd first. I've also tried the cd on 3 different machines with the same result.
