Cannot run installer from DVD, error part way through aas it could not find img I think. Tried 4 differnet downloads and 4 different burns. Almost every other linux distro will boot on my "modern" quad core PC.
Would really like to try it but cannot waste any more time on it. If there is a secret code for booting this OS, possibly it should be made VERY clear as to how.
