O.K.
From the beginning:
Yesterday I burned a copy of 8.04 on a disk, verified the data, and ran bootcamp. After bootcamp failed a few times, I backed up my mac partition to an external drive, booted off the leopard install CD, manually set the partition table to master boot record, and added my partitions. After this I booted the install CD and all went well, until GRUB failed to install. After some research, I found out how to install LILO on my computer, and detailed the steps found here. (http://bin-false.org/?p=17)
After this, I fired it up and to my delight it actually worked! I was amazed, until I reached the login screen. There was about a 2 second delay between key presses and said key presses appearing on screen, and the mouse takes about a minute to be coaxed across the screen. Its completely unusable. Any ideas to help fix it?
