i don't know what's up with my aging pc. it's run ubuntu off a boot cd just fine about 10 or so months back. i had to do this in the past because something happened with windows and so i used ubuntu to transfer files from the windows drive to a backup filler drive. however it seems to be giving me kernal panic and some other errors now. whether i run gparted for partitioning or ubuntu old and new or other linux stuff on hirens boot cd or UBCD. hell, even trying to run mini windows xp from the newest hirens cd/WinUBCD wont work either. even so i'm not here for that. if i could just get ubuntu or knoppix working on my system i could transfer the files over, format and partition the drives. here's a picture i took with my digicam so you see what i mean:
what is going on? i don't see how things could have changed so drastically that it wont run.
3.25GB PC3200 sdram
80GB HDD 7200rpm
ATI Radeon XPress 200
AMD Athlon 64 3800+ 2.4GHz
that's the best to my memory. anything else needed?
well thanks for your and any help.
i just noticed my profile has my specs as well. even more so the better info too i guess. haha.
