Sorry if this is the wrong forum,i couldn't find th right one ,pls help me. :(
Since i am a noob to linux ,i read all the manuals with greatest sincerity read the help at all steps,Now i start my install.In gtk+ The top bar shws working and the bottom bar shows preparing,I turn off the monitor at 9.55 pm.Next morning at 7 am i turn on the monitor and it's the same thing.No hard drive busy light or noise.No cd drive bsy light .How long for the install.I have a d drive which i formatted as fat32,In options i chose delete d partition and used recommended .Please tell me if everythn is in order and how long will it take.I would have let it run,but i didn't know if all was well.
Extremely sorry ,but this is my first encounter with linux.Ppl said i should try another easy distro like ubuntu first,But i have decided to go with gentoo despite the step learning curve coz i know that i can get help with the forums,pls help me.
I have an amd athlonxp 2200+,so i chose athlon xp in processor type,I have 384 mb ram
