I would like help with the loading of Mandrake 10.

I started the loading of Mandrake 10 all was ok untill it asked for info on a drive and came up with this

FOUND "parport-pc" "imm," "ppa" interfaces

do you have another

When I clicked on yes I got a lot of drives I guess seagate was one of them.

When I clicked on no I got an error message.

When I clicked on show hardware I got a list which I can only guess was the motherboard and maybe the harddrive the might be others but I cannot descipher them and it also says in the help that you might have to load them manually, how do you do that and what do you write in :badpc:

Do you know where I can get step by step instructions on how to load tis operating system

Have you got or had another operating system working ?

Hmm ... can't say I have ever installed Mandrake, but to be asked those sorts of questions by the installer sounds a little strange. Are you using a text mode installation as opposed to the graphical installer? Is this an old computer that you are installing Mandrake on?

You can find some installation guides here:
