View Full Version : [ubuntu] Dimension 4100 Install Trouble

May 20th, 2008, 04:11 AM
Hey, I have this ancient Dimension 4100 sitting here in my room and I decided I'd turn it into a Ubuntu box. The old hard drive was shot so my friend gave me a 20gig one that he had in some other ancient computer. I put that in there and tried starting off my Feisty live CD. I see the menu, click start, watch stuff load for a while, then see the loading bar bouncing back and fourth beneath the Ubuntu logo. After that, I get this message:

BusyBox v1.1.3 (Debian 1 something blah blah)
Enter 'Help' for more commands

/bin/sh: can't access tty; job control turned off
(initramfs) _(blinking cursor)

If someone could help, that'd be great, I'd love to get this working for some reason.

EDIT: If it matters, I forgot to include:

RAM: 256megs
Video: Pny Verto Geforce something 64megs
Processor: Intel Pentium III, 800MHz
