Any guidance on the cd. After I boot my computer with the cd in the cd-rom it starts to load the operating system. Then after configuring the pc shut down automatically and starts to make a sound. Can anyone help me? what should be done.
That is more than likely some hardware issue, I would recommend downloading the newest version of Knoppix or getting one of the other "Live-CD" Linux distros. Just Google for it, there are loads. I myself run FreeBSD and Ubuntu Linux. Very fun to play with, very cool to use day to day!
