Afternnon to one and all.
Complete noob to Linux. I have tried to boot from the acquired CD, despite selecting either of the two options, the following message is displayed:
0.51600 MP-BIOS bug:8254 timer not connected to IO-APIC
0.52000 Kernel panic-not syncing! IO-APIC+time doesn't work! Boot with apic=debug and send a report. Then try booting with 'noapic' option.
I am sure that I must have missed a simple command, any suitable workarounds for this please.
I realise that I have embarked on what will be a new way of thinking, but did not expect to fall over at the first hurdle!!
