well, i downloaded fedora core 3 dvd image, but now, i cant boot from the dvd drive, which i have it as a secondary master.
It seems that someone doesnt want me to try linux... :?
anyway, i need help with this thing, and i also welcome your linux suggestions.
If you have vmware or some similar software you could try that. Since you don't have a second PC to try the disk on. That might help isolate the disk as bad. With vmware you can also boot from an iso, which could isolate the image.
