FYI

I have a CD/DVD burner and a CD/DVD player in my computer and the only way I could get this iso to boot was to unplug one of them. I'm posting this as a FYI in case you were having trouble getting the iso to boot on your system resulting in a kernel panic. This could be your problem.

re: Mandrake 9.2 destroys LG cdrom

Well, let's not stir that up again. It was confirmed at the time that it was a kernel issue effecting several distros. Mandriva (Mandrake) was just the first one "caught" and got all the bad press. But it effected suse and redhat as well as others too.

Well, actually my slave drive on my secondary ide is a LG cdrw. But the system wouldn't boot with two drives hooked up, so it was the LG that got unplugged here.

Accelerating Scientific Analysis with the SciDB Open Source Database System

Science is swimming in data. And, the already daunting task of managing and analyzing this information will only become more difficult as scientific instruments — especially those capable of delivering more than a petabyte (that’s a quadrillion bytes) of information per day — come online. Tackling these extreme data challenges will require a system that is easy enough for any scientist to use, that can effectively harness the power of ever-more-powerful supercomputers, and that is unified and extendable. This is where the Department of Energy’s (DOE) National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center’s (NERSC’s) implementation of SciDB comes in. Read more
