What options did it give you, exactly? Which did you choose?

What error message does it give you, exactly, when?

What happened when you held down ctrl and alt then hit F2 with them? Nothing?

Something's just occurred to me. They're up to version 11 by now, 6 is extremely old. Turbolinux isn't free, either. If you want to install Linux when you've already installed Windows, Fedoracore might be a better idea.

That's pretty modern. Not a lot of distros might properly support that yet. See if you can boot from a gentoo minimal livecd.
