I have a sony vaio VGN-SR290 laptop came with Windows Vista Business edition 32 bit.
I have used partition manager and made an 40 GB drive.
I have downloaded Mandriva One 2011 32 bits iso and made the bootable disc.
I changed the boot priority to DVD drive and began installation.
first it starts booting and loads some files and gave me two options 1) to launch 2) new installation
i have selected new installation then installation starts and suddenly it throws white screen and after some time DVD drive stops reading DVD.
Thanks & Regards,

go here: easyURPMI
or here: smartURPMI
Commandline admin too cumbersome? Try Webmin:
