In response to the problems with slow DHCP under Edubuntu, I've decided to
try and install the K12LTSP Centos 5EL.
I'm using the same machine. I just switched hard drives (same make and
I'm using the 6 install CDs (the install DVD would not burn on my system --
The installation stops and says I do not have any hard drives. The BIOS
recognizes the hard drive and indeed I can boot from it.
The motherboard says M2V-MX SE on it. I searched around and found reference
to a sata_via module. I tried adding the module through the Centos
installation menu (where it says, "do you want to add any hardware
modules?"). However, the installation still fails a few screens later
(after I choose English language and keyboard and LTSP system). It says
there is no hard drive again.
Please help. I didn't mean to start flames between K12LTSP and Edubuntu.
I'm just trying to get a working system. I have parents coming in on Monday
night, so I'm working this weekend to try and iron out the problem. I would
like them to come away saying, "Wow, this is cool. Why is the school
district spending money on Windows software?"
