old computer problems
i have an old PIII machine. i am trying to put linux on it, but it is refusing to work properly.
it will not boot of any cds. i have tried windows ones, and linux ones, live and install. (the bios is set up ok)
when i try putting the hdd in another computer, it always messess up halfway through the install.
is this a HDD problem? if so, i dont see why it would stop a computer booting from a cd. also, if so, does anyone know where i can buy a cheap <10GB ide HDD?
