Slackware newbie install question
Hi fellow Slackers,
I'm a newbie slacker here with a question.
OK. I have my hard drive split up into three partitions.
hda1 - bootable 32megs ext3
hda2 - linux swap 500megs ext3
hda3 - reiserfs - the rest!
Is it correct that my root partition is hda3 - so this is where the install files, when prompted by the cd install, will go?
Also, I have installed slack on a T21 ibm laptop. This laptop doesnt have a floppy - well, it does but the CD/dvd is interchangeable...so, i can't make a slack boot disk during the install (because i'm installing off the cd at the time it asks to make a boot disk)
So if I don't make a boot disk, and take out the Slack CD, it just boots and I get the error message 'no operating system'
So what are my options here? Can I do something with Lilo at the setup screen to have it boot w/out a flopppy?
*oops - mods please move to Slackware dist forum - sorryabouthtat*
