can anyone shed any light on a small problem I have.
After evaluating a couple of Linux distros on my PC (I tried Mandrake

box and install win 2000 on the old "linux" box (for the kids to use).
However, I am having some difficulty installing Win 2000.
When I inserted the CD it started OK and then stopped with the message:
file \i386\ntkrnlmp.exe could not be loaded the error code is 7
OK I thought - Maybe it's due to the linux bootloader, so, I wiped the

I then tried to install another linux distro (fedora core 3) both out of
curiosity to see what it looked like and also to see if anything could
Sure enough the system loaded and runs fine.
Anyone know why I can't load windoze
It has been my experience that the Win 2000 CD is not bootable - and it
requires four (4) floppies to do the initial setup. That might explain
your problem. YMMV.
