Loading new Distro.

Postby mipcar » Fri Apr 03, 2009 7:59 pm

I have a copy of Ubunto that I wanted to try but all my attempts at loading brings up the message "Error Occurred While Loading Archive".
The first copy I tried was a disk I burned the same way/day as the disk I used to put on this Mint Version.. Downloaded on an m/s machine and then burnt the iso disk.
When that did not work I brought down another copy on my Linux machine and copied the file using the Linux recommended way, disk created fine but still get the same error message.. Any ideas?

Also any suggestions of other Distros to play with? My sole experience so far is with Mint 6.

Always something to learn for those open to learning.

I don't know whats wrong with your ubuntu install, but to read about all the others available go to http://distrowatch.com
Resistance [to Linux] is futile.
