Ok. Boot the suse live media, Post out put of
Why oh why you installed a KDE distro with grub2 with rpm command syntax on a 512 MB box.
I know why. Because you are new and work with what you have and are trying real
hard to get this done.
Trouble is. I don't run rpm distros/ know their file location structure/ know the command
syntax for terminal, because I am kde, grub2, and rpm distro dyslexic. So my help will wane
away in this thread.
Good luck with it though. you are going to need CentOS, Fedora, Redhat, Scientific, OpenSuse,
user replies to your problems now so my advice is close this thread and explain in a new thread in the Open Suse section of the forum what your problem is and post the fdisk -l
command I gave in that thread. Be descriptive, Be nice and respectful, Be detailed.
You will will get some opinions like JohnVV brought up about ram. Just sigh and ignore as
you wait till you find some. My media center came with 512MB and single core processor and
I shoehorned another ide drive for dual drive and raised the ram specs ti 1.5 Gig and
AntiX screams on it and so does video.
ust remember that no current OS actually looks for a 3.5 in floppy any longer
You need to add "modeprob floppy" to the boot line for the kernel to even look for one installed
You can ignore that statement as all you were going to do do was have bios regonize and boot the floppy to ram. Then the floppy OS was going to boot the usb. That is all.
I supplied dolphins_oracles AntiX install videos. I mentioned unplug the Windows hard drive. I recommended the right distro and right floppy image to use with the easy instructions to follow using Windows even to write the floppy image. That is the best I can do for you.
Time for coffee and a shower. You have a good one and Happy Trails, Rok
P.S. Us linux guys are really nice guys. Some of us are all business and a little cold but
all of us have our heart in the right place. Just ignore the nay sayers and listen to the
olnes that try real hard to help you along.
I know you can do this. You just lack the skills yet. Be patient. You will get there.
