    CD Boot

    Which version are you using?

    Have you tried any cheat codes?

    Are you booting CD from start-up?

    Perhaps you could post the error you get along with some specifications of the machine you are using along with any steps you take when you boot and any cheat codes you have tried at a minimum I would suggest using just failsafe at the boot: prompt to boot with minimal hardware detection.

    no luck

    It seems to be a kernel error I tried booting with debian with kernel 2.2.9 and it booted fine but it refuses to boot with kernel 2.4.22 I have even tried to boot it from a cd and it will not boot just kernel NULL dereference at address
