Subject: A few quick newbie questions...
Using a 200GIG WD harddrive and VIA EPIA M10000 mini-ITX motherboard
512 megs of RAM....
#1 - I do the install, no problems as far as I can tell, then it has to do
a reboot. It gets to where it is then asking for a "username" in the
middle of the screen. I don't have a username. At some point during the
install it forces me to put in an admin name or something, but that
user/pass doesn't work. Is there a way during the install to tell it
"hey, no freaking user/pass on this computer"?
Try the user name root, and whatever password you put in when you were
prompted during installation.
#2 - Want to do a dual boot between XP and Linux. Do I partition the
harddrive first, then install XP, then install Linux?
That is the recommended method.
This is all new ground to me (Linux and dual booting). While I'm
computer dunce, these two "issues" has me stumped. Please use small words
and pretty pictures.
You should really peruse the docs at
, especially the Step By Step
