Yes!- finally up & running.Installed Linux on first partition of 3rd hard drive which is the primary on the ATA 66 controller.Used Partition Commander to create & format the partition-used install to existing partition >installed all programs.No longer dealing with the built in ATA 100 controller -at least as far as Linux is concerned.During install selected Bootloader into boot sector not MBR-dummy that I am didn't make a boot disk >had to "upgrade" then created boot disk- so now there are extra entries in the Lilo configuration.
Questions regarding Lilo:
how do I make just one the default?
The little boxes/tabs(?)which shows it's activated-the tab is raised or depressed?-I see this in various parts of Linux-have not had time yet to read up on the details.
I currently have about 10 listings in the boot configuration:Failsafe,Floppy,Linux(/boot/vmlinuz),Linux-nonfb(/boot/vmlinuz), Old linux-nonfb(/boot/linuz-2.2.17-21mdk),Old2 Failsafe (/boot/vmliuz-2.2.17-21mdk), OLd Linux(/boot/vmliuz-2.2.17-21mdk).
Root=/dev/hda1 Append-(where used)=hdd=ide-scsi
Which ones do I keep? The image line >do I use the one with just /boot/vmliuz or do I need the one with the kernel info in the line also?
Currently booting into Linux via Floppy.Am using System Commander-installed on first drive-(Windows 98SE)-booting system from the Promise ATA 100 controller-able to boot Windows & BeOS with it-with this new Install-no longer get System Commander error when trying to boot into Linux- it starts LILO-but I get only first two letters "LI" then there's a flashing cursor-I'm guessing here that I need to eliminate the extra entries in Lilo and make just one the default if possible-correct me if I'm wrong.Once I get past this point I should be rolling!
Floppy drive-how Do I get it so I can access anything in the Floppy drive- everytime I try I get something about Permissions.
E-mail- still can't get KMail to receive mail.Go into Configure>Netconfig> Host name is correct but the Adapter will not hold the correct name.For whatever reason though I can get mail thru Netscape-so just wondering why one works and the other doesn't.
Netscape/Konquerer don't display pages the same way as Internet Explorer does-is there some settings that need to be changed or is it just how they operate?
Broadband question-with Windows I was able to edit the "Default RecvWindows" to triple my speed. Is there any kind of adjustment like this in Linux?
I want to thank everyone who helped me out in the various forums! Dave
