Yesterday , I downloaded and burnt to CD a copy of i686 version . I tried the boot the live-cd. Partway through, it locked up the computer with the error message 

'waiting for 30 seconds for dev/disk/by-label/PARA201507....... 

ERROR: 'dev/disk/by-label/PARA201507' device did not show up after 30 seconds.. 
Falling back to interactive prompt 
you can try to fix the problem manually, log out when you are finished 

sh: can't access tty; job control turned off 
[root fs/] #" 

The computer is an E-tower 500is running Intel celeron @500MHz and RAM 256 MB. I had the same error while trying run it on an AMD Athlon_xp@ 2400MHz and 2GB of RAM 

I would like to try this distro but I am a newbie/end user with-out much knowledge of Linux. Appreciate any help.
