Old versions often do not show new drive systems. Try Ubuntu next time.
I keep running into folk that must run some Redhat version 5 and to solve that we do not install it but install it to a VirtualBox machine. See VIRTUALBOX on google.
I am using hp envy4 1002TX ultrabook which has a 32gb SSD drive with a normal 500gb drive and has no internal dvd drive.Although i have an external DVD player/writer.
Currently I am using windows7 which came installed with the laptop. I need to work on linux now so I tried to dual boot my pc.Can you please guide me the best method to do so.Should I do it using a bootable pendrive or boot it using a CD or install in in one of my partitions.
Although I tried to install linux though a CD/DVD in one of my partitions but during the installation it is'nt showing any of the drives/partitions of my pc to which I can install linux .I think this is happening because I am using an external dvd player and it is not able to read the drives properly.
