Thanks for the replies. I'm sure I'll work my way through this.
with bianca log into a terminal session (choose at login screen) and then run envy and install the nvidia drivers.
Boo -- I no longer have Linux Mint on my machine only Vi$ta. More about the install below.
1) did you save some of that 160gb for swap?
2) did you try safe grafhics mode?
D1Wayne -- I think
that I did allocate Swap space. As far as I remember the installer does this automatically. I did try to install both Cassandra and Bianca in Safe Graphics mode. But no luck. With Cassandra the CD does not boot the machine, and with Bianca the install starts, but the screen goes black, and does not allow me to complete the install. I have heard of Ubuntu 7.04 doing the same thing as Cassandra in other Forums e.g. the CD does not boot.
Had this problem with Ubuntu once upon a time...
newW2 -- Yes, I also had this issue in the past. I think that it was with Dapper. The work around was to add a script to "Options" for the install. I can not remember what it was. But, I do remember "dpkg-reconfigure xserever-xorg" very, very well.
Does the live CD run?
Your problem is with installation?
Husse -- Yes my issue is with the install of either Bianca or Cassandra.
Again -- thanks for the replies, and any further help.
