HP NETSERVER LPr PII / 450 SERVER linux install Help
Hi People, I have a question regarding this machine HP NETSERVER LPr PII / 450 SERVER. I purchased this machine a week or so ago from ebay. (Surprise Surprise). I know its old but am confident it will serve my needs.
My problem is I cannot install a recent version of Linux. I have Red Hat V9, fedora, SuSe V9.1, SuSe V7.1 on Disks.
The Suse Version 7.1 installs to this machine from the CD Hence I am pretty confident that the installed components work.
I would like to install my registered version od SuSe V9.1 to able update.
However when I boot from CD the machine Hangs/Freezes at the Welcome screen. I Have the same error when I attempt to install the Red Hat and Fedora versions.
I have read finagens "Before you Post" thread and am not sure my situation falls into any categories he explains. I will provide the system spec if required.
What does the older SuSe v7.1 Have that Version 9.1 does not?
or, is it possible/advisable to stick with the 7.1 and update?
