I've tried pretty much the same as you.....the problem (I believe) lies
with the fact that I game Mepis free reign to do as it wanted to when I
downloaded it to my hard drive....Of course, I guess I could get another
hard drive.........Wow, sounds like a big deal doing that.
Thanks for the suggestions...I did look for another area in BIOS and found
only the one I used to change to boot from CD first. I have the original disk
(win2k Pro) but it does absolutely nothing. I did try to use Ubuntu and it
started to boot and then found all kinds of errors so I did a hard shut down
and yanked the CD......
I did a re-install of Mepis and now I can use some of the smaller live CD's
which is what I wanted to do...I just looked at Puppy but I'll try others.
