I have been using backtrack on several computers now, but I am unable to get a specific older one to boot on backtrack. I have tried every single boot code and in multiple different combinations but no avail.

I have been able to get to login, but when enter root/toor all I get is a repeating error that scrolls to fast for me to read. I tried to film it and slow it down but it just scrolls to fast.

The computer is a pos acer 512dx, mendocino processor with practically no ram, speaking of which I couldn't find any bt hw req specs on how much ram is needed. So if you can help please do, if you can't then don't post.
