    This is really strange

    I installed linux on a puter, went through with no problems...until I just scrolled a bunch of 0's and 1's as if though it were talking to me in binary....what could be the problem???

    I'd just re-install it...If @ first you don't succeed...try and try again!

    I have seen that when lilo is not loaded correctly, what linux has reported at times is that LILO is residing after the 1024th cylinder or something like that, and yes to fix that i had to re-install and made sure that the /boot partition was at the very beginning of my partition table.
    I think i'm right heh =) if not someone plz correct me

    I suggest you learn a second language, something the computer does not understand, so when it speaks to you in binary, you speak to it in Swahili for example.. It will not understand you and will want to compromise with you in speaking in a single language.... Hope this helped..

    Re: LILO speaking Swahili.. I mean Binary

    I would try booting the system with your LILO boot disk, if it boots up fine, just re-install LILO and reboot.

    If the LILO boot disk gets you the same `screen de jour', then definitely re-install. No sense fighting a hosed install for months, especially if you don't have any important data on the system yet.
