CRC Error while uncompressing Linux - Need Help with Fujitsu P1120
I've been waiting long enough now for posting this.
For several days I am trying to install Puppy 4 on my new P1120.
After a long journey through the WWW I stumbled across a site called Lin'n'Win Newb Guide. Following the instructions ended up in a crc error while booting Puppy.
What I'm trying to do:
Since I don't have any optical drives, i.e. none that I get to work, I'm trying to perform a frugal install on my NTSF partition and then install Puppy to the HD, which I have already partitioned and formated, using the universal installer.
Fujitsu Lifebook P1120
Win XP Home
256 MB SDRAM, 240 are useable
Transmeta Crusoe TM5800 @ 800 MHz
5400 RPM HDD, already partitioned an so on...
What I did:
Following the instruction given on the Lin'n'Win homepage:
downloaded the Puppy 4 image and copied the required files as instructed to my hard drive, downloaded an configured the grub boot loader.
What I get:
At start up I get to select between starting windows and linux and select Linux.
The folowing menu let's me select between Puppy 4 and default startup, i.e. Windows.
Selecting Linux ends up in a CRC error while uncompressing Linux.
Any help is highly appriciated
