Hi,


I have an old pc, and this new Graphical/liveCd installation of Dapper Distro is very very slow and takes ages. To load the X desktop took me ages.

The Non Graphical installation via just this blue screen fast easy and accurate was great for old machines.

My old **** pc has also a very old cd reader & 64MB.

Greetings

Then why don't you just use the alternate text-mode install cd?

The alternate install cd is for your scenario, use that.

I am very sorry about this thread !
I just found that

Alternate install CD
*
* creating pre-configured OEM systems;
* setting up automated deployments;
* upgrading from older installations without network access;
* LVM and/or RAID partitioning;
* installing GRUB to a location other than the Master Boot Record;
* installs on systems with less than about 128MB of RAM.

*
is the guy I need !!

I'm downloading it now.

New versions of softwares have always been terrible for me to change.

I understood more now about these 3 cds.

ISO desktop : live install for fast pc

SERVER ISO: for server only
beware 'cos some troubles of hardware can be encountered

Alternate ISO : for oldies

==========
Sorry for my delay in these distros & iso' s
I hadnt time to go much further with upgrading to dapper ... this time...
this thread could be maybe deleted or if not, useful for non brand new folks as me !! :-)
