Hey everyone,
I'm a 17 year-old-newbie trying to learn Linux. I just installed
Mandrake 8.1 on a virtual machine (VMware Workstation 3.0). After booting up
without a hitch, I come to a problem when I get to the log-in screen. The
entire screen starts flashing, maybe every 5 seconds, maybe every 1, there
isn't really a set pattern. No input gets through while the screen's black
during the flashing process. I really don't have the option of running a
dual boot because I need to have both Linux and Windows up and running at the
same time. Anyone have any ideads how I can fix this?
