I need some help. I just installed 10.0 on a Acer 4560 notebook. Booted off dvd, installed off the hard drive.

The install was good, not many bumps in the road. After all was done, and the system reboots, I get a boot screen where I can pick Linux or Xp. Xp loads fine, but the Linux hangs on a blank screen.

No code no nothing. I'm not sure whats going on with it. Any help would make my day.

Is this a Travelmate?

Could you look at the users manual and tell us what video card that it has? Possibly an ATI card?

Here is the whole specs. It's a Acer TravelMate 4653LMI. I'm running XP Pro SP2 on a 50 gig partition, and Mandrake 10.1 on a 20 partition. Everything is FAT32. Xp is working just fine, and I get a bootloader screen where I can pick Linux or Xp.

This is my first time installing Linux in many moons. However, the install was not hard. I did install Linux to the MBR.
