I have a Linux CD that I am trying to use. On one system I have (with a Pentium MMX 200 and 64MB Ram) I am trying to install Linux to it, and my CD was slightly scratched up. On my powerhouse box with a CD-RW, it reads fine and setup will load fully. On the MMX box, it has a 24X CD-ROM and Linux setup only loads its RAM-disk half way, says Initializing CD-ROM, and just sits there. After wearing out a DiskDoctor on the CD, I see no improvement. So I try to copy the disk onto a CD-R with Veritas Record Now on my powerhouse box. It says it cant read the Linux CD. Is it just getting confused when it don't recognise the file structure, or is it really having a hard time reading it to copy it? I think it is just getting confused (like I say, I have no trouble whatsoever loading setup from the disk to install Linux on my powerhouse box). I do have XP on my powerhouse box, making it incompatible with my version of Linux without repartitioning my hard disk, and I don't want to bother with that yet.
