I have a SV24 with a CyricIII 900 cpu. I had XP Pro formatted NTFS. I am trying to install some type of Linux, I have Mandrake 8.2, Mandrake 9.1 beta and Red Hat 8.0. I cant get the HD formatted , I tried to use the Western Digital software for the drive but it doesnt want to JUST format it. I tried booting from the CDs but for some reason it doesnt want to boot from CD starts too ,then goes to another drive. I have tried to install 5 different verisons of Linux over the years and Mandrake 8.2 was the first one that i got installed and worked. It was on a PII 333 and upgraded it to a Duron 950 and spent all day trying to get it upgraded/reinstalled but it would just give me different errors so I just reformated the SV24. I am TRYING to learn Linux but Linux just wont let me . I need a bootable linux or dos floppy that has format and fdisk on it to wipe it all clean and see if that will do it. I think it has ezbois on it now and thats messing me up.
