    Default mkdir() failed to create /Library/Logs with error: Read-only file system

    I've tried installing iPC OSx86 10.5.6 on 3 different Dell PC's. This is my very first attempt with OSx86 of any kind, but I don't understand why I'm having this issue.

    Optiplex GX270 (250GB IDE HD, 512MB DDR Ram, Intel 865 Chipset)
    Optiplex GX280 (300GB Sata HD, 1GB DDR2 Ram, Intel 915 Chipset)
    Optiplex SX280 (320GB Sata HD, 512MB DDR2, Intel 965 Chipset (I think))

    I keep getting this error over and over again:

    Code:
    mkdir() failed to create /Library/Logs with error: Read-only file system
    Disk loads fine, I have hyperthreading disabled in bios, and I've tried with and without cpus=1, and still get the error.

    I've searched the forums, I can find a few times where others saw this issue, but no clear solution in my case (lots are using VMWare, but I'm doing direct single OS install)

    After the error occurs numerous times, the installation decides it's ready to shutdown the system and shuts down.

    Do I need to format the hard drives prior to install?
    Am I missing something besides hyperthreading in the bios?
    Do USB Keyboard/Mouse cause these issues? I'm thinking highly unlikely

    I'm probably doing something very wrong. I've heard all these systems work very easily out of the box.

    UPDATE:
    PROBLEM SOLVED, CHOSE TO RE-BURN THE DVD SINCE MY PROBLEMS DIDN'T MAKE ANY SENSE, IT BOOTS AND GETS TO INSTALL SCREEN NOW.

    THANKS EVERYONE WHO TRIED.

    You may have installed on an NTSF file system hard drive. Perhaps try formatting and reinstalling? Format the drive as a FAT32 drive and see what happens.

    I read SOMEWHERE, though I can't remember where that this may cause an issue or two.

    You will need NTFS-3G and MacFUSE to modify MSDOS Filesystems

    I'm not trying to read/write any MSDOS file systems. I am trying to do a fresh OSx86 install on a Dell PC and I keep getting that error.

    Should I have my hard drive formatted to something specific before installing? FAT32? ext3? something else?

    I am very new to OSx86, well OSx period, and I don't know why I can't install it on any of my 3 Dell systems.
