I am having a hard time installing suse on my newly
built pc. I had sucessfully installed it many times before on my old
I have the boxed version of suse 8.1
professional. I load up via cd. It shows me various options to
installing. I choose the top one (installation) which I have done in the
past. Then it loads kernel. Screens pop up asking what language and
type of keyboard. I hit enter on both occassions. Then, and this is
where installation halts, a message pops up asking me to be sure that cd 1
is installed. I press enter for ok. Then a red box pops up and
states that cd rom can not be mounted.
I tried to go manual installation but same
error. I have tried alternative installation disk 2 but same
I have a P4 800mhz processor with 1GB memory and an
intel motherboard. Thinking it might be my cd rom I changed it with my
other one that was used to install suse before but same results.
All cds are good/ not damaged. Googling just
made me waste time.
If someone can give me insight and direction I
would be very grateful.
