When I tried to install linux on this old computer, I get beeping sounds at a particular point in installation. The four beeps are repetitive, and progressively increasing in pitch, and starting all over again.
I initially thought this could be because of heating of the processor. But I had no problem when I installed Windows 98 SE and Damn Small Linux (DSL) on that computer. The fan on the system works fine.
I tried to install Kubuntu, Ubuntu and Dreamlinux. I also thought it could be because of the virus warning in the BIOS, which I disabled. However, the problem persists.
The computer specs - Pentium 2, 350 MHz, 4 GB HDD, 256 MB ram
I doubt this, but could it be because of insufficient disk space? 4 gb should be sufficient right? Entire 4 gb was given for installation, but even then it beeps.
