Oralux requires that your cd-rom be set as a boot device in the bios of
your PC. It should never boot into windows. The cd-rom should be before
the hard disk in the boot sequence in your bios. This means that when
the oralux cd is in the cd-rom it will boot. If not windows will boot.

Subject: A linux distro for newbys

Could anyone suggest a Linux distro which would be suitable for someone
wanting to get started with Linux? I would use the Modified Fedora only
my Apollo synthesiser is at home I think and not at my flat and I can't
find the connector for attaching it to the COM2 port or whatever it
would be refered to under Linux. I was going to bring my hardware
synthesiser out of where I had it to use with the Modified Redhat at the
time before I had the problem findind the end for the cable. I tried
running Orolux on my Desktop but it kept booting into windows and this
may be because I have a problem starting windows because it beeps and
tries to look for my phone even though I uninstalled the PC suite
because I was having problems with it although whether this caused my
problem with Orolux I don't know. I put the disk in when I started my PC
and it still booted into windows even when I pressed enter to get past
my problem. Hope someone can answer my question.
