Ok I have been having tons of issues. First of all BT3 works great on my old p3 thinkpad, however I am trying to dual boot vista on my Acer 5100 system with some problems. I am fairly new to linux, i ran redhat about 5 years ago so i am not a total newb but i am very rusty.

1. When booting linux it pauses several times. If i hold down any key for a while it keeps going. if i leave it alone it just sits there. I tried booting for cd, dvd, usb and hdd with the same results (not too bad i guess)

2. I installed BT3 to the hdd using the movie.. works somewhat. nothing seems to mount, it is usable. Do i need to configure the fstab file? here is what mount reports
aufs on / type aufs (rw)
proc on /proc type proc (rw)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)
usbfs on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw)
3. It is not using the swap partition i created, i assume its a configuration problem?

any tips will be appreciated..
