**Double burning** .. : Thought that K3B made a mistake when problem
happened then used nero on windows.
**Check cd**..: In the beginning * no *. After my mail I tried to press
enter when icons popped-up. It did take me up to the menu.
When I pressed the check option it also went into the scrolling lines.
All options does the same except *check memory*.
Pclinux I downloaded and burned with same writer.
The others got from a distro supplier.
All operating systems on this laptop is 32-bit.
Trust this may be of assistance.
