Hello Rita G.

Thank you for replies.

BIOS is set to boot from CD.

Md5's match from download site & burning software.

I can boot & use 1.9.19 with no problems.

But 1.9.21 boots text for about 10 seconds and stops at:

BusyBox v1.10.2 (Debian 1:11.10.2-2) built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

/bin/sh: can't access tty; job control turned off
(initramfs) _

download it again and burn it to a CD-R.

sometimes downloads can get screwed up even when a MD5 checksum comes back valid.
it could also be a Bad CD...

Try downloading, and burning again and see if that helps.
