. If you have a high-speed connection, I'd download the image again and burn a fresh disc. . If you are on dial-up, I'd burn a new disc from the same image. If that doesn't work, see first suggestion. . If that doesn't work, I'd wipe the HDD and start from scratch.

How do you wipe a harddrive in linux? Specifically PCLOS minime?

Yeah, what would I do in PCLOS minime to do that? I can't just type del C in Linux, so how do I do it?

. IIRC, you use the mkfs command, but I can't remember the params. Man will give you the details. From a command prompt, just type "man mkfs"

Try Darn Small Linux (DSL for short). It's super small, good for testing and trying out.
