corel linux and the dell web pc

I have an old peice o crap that I use at home for my personal use. It is a dell web pc, 500Mhz athlon processor, 256Mb sdram. 10.24gig hard drive, so its not all that bad, but when I try to install COREL LINUX on it it goes through the installation. But when I run it my screen flashes on login prompt and from there on. It only pauses when I exit the system. ??? I am very confused on this and need some help cause I would like to have it installled and learn more on how to use it... Please help!

..."piece o crap" ????!!!! man.... kids today Smilie

Anyway, sounds like maybe a video driver problem but more
details would help. Could be a mouse driver problem as well
looking like someone is holding down the return key or
somthing. Be sure to check this on the install... don't just guess...
be sure you use a supported mouse and know your video
card chipset, etc.

Next... try RedHat Linux Smilie
