no such username/password, rather than "Could not find kernel image:
linux"? I am booting the dvd, which has no username for me yet.
If I let the boot proceed without trying to force it into text mode
and wait for the video mode error message, at that point I can hit
ctl-alt-f3 and escape into the command line tty. At that point it asks
for a username, and if I type in 'root' it logs me in without any
password. I suppose I could proceed with the install, or maybe tweak
the video setup, at that point, but I don't know what to do.
