What kind of HP/Compaq system is this?
Do you have a 2nd computer available to setup a serial console?
Its an HP (a1030e)I bought a couple months ago, Specs:
AMD 64bit 3300+
40 gig SATA hd (20g for Linux)
GeForce FX 5200
and yes, I can probably use a live CD to run on my roommate's computer as the second computer... as for setting up a serial console, again, you'll have to walk me through it or point me towards a source that does.
