Let me first start by saying that I new to the Linux world, but very excited to get this stuff working. I am a windows guy for now and pretty competent in that arena. I grew up using Xenix, Unix and Aix, but it has been about 10 years.
So I am on my second attempt at getting a machine to load correctly. I have an Asus P5N7A-VM, Core 2 Quad 2.5, 2x2GB Corsair, LG Blu Ray Drive, and a Samsung 1TB HD. I started out getting errors about the fd0, but I disabled the floppy in the BIOS and that went away. Now when I boot off the i386 710 DVD download and select Install Linux MCE, I see the splash screen and then the BusyBox message with (initramfs) prompt. I have tried disabled and reconfiging the BIOS with no luck. Now I am back to defaults in the BIOS with the floppy change. Can anyone help me PLEEEEASE!! And please keep in mind I might not know all the obvious stuff yet.
