alt1 + text only installation - how?
I have an ancient Toshiba 480CDT laptop that I want to install mandrake 10 onto as the only OS. It's not the most powerful of beasts and kernel 2.6 won't recognise the cd drive (after just booting from it!?) - so I have to use 2.4 for starters.
Doing this install graphically it freezes about 1/3 in whilst "installing package liblDL2.0" My guess is that my 48mb of memory (yes, I know) is having a bit of a hard time of it all so I want to run the install in text mode as well as with the "alt1" option - I've tried at a few syntax combinations but I can't seem to get them to both work together...
So, what should I be typing at the boot: prompt?
