slackware usb cd-rom install?
I recently got a IBM Thinkpad 240 and i'm trying to dual-boot windows 2000 and Slackeware. I have a floppy drive that I can boot from and a USB CD-Rom(causes alot of troubles, read on). My bios doesnt support usb boot or cd-rom. The only way that I was able to install 2000 was to:
First make a modified win98 boot disk with USB support and install win 98 from the cd.
Then copy the windows 2000 I386 folder onto the hard drive.
The reason I had to copy the I386 folder to the hard drive was because when windows 2000 was installing from the cd-rom and it rebooted to complete the install, the usb drivers are not present. Hence, copying the install folder to the hard drive.
I used the usb.i boot disk and it detected my usb cd-rom, I got the following after the auto detection (last 2 lines of detection):
hub.c USB new device connect on bus1/1, assigned device number 2
usb.c USB device 2 (vend/pro 0x4b3/0x4427) is not claimed by any active driver
Which rootdisk should I use to start up the iso install or can I?
