It's a shame I have to go as far as post
having such a simple problem...
used Linux before in my life and now I'm following this step-by-step tutorial for installing Debian with only 3 floppies (it's possible!).
The problem is THIS simple:
I boot with rescue disk
and get everything down ok, but when this tutorial
says the boot process should ask for root.bin
, it asks for linux.bin
. Sure... but I don't need the linux.bin for floppy installation and hey, I don't even want to use it because I don't have Linux on my computer... yet!
So linux.bin gives me Kernel panic, of course. No fs mounted.
So how do I get to the root.bin and thus access dbootstrap
, which is essential for installation? What are the arguments? Am I completely lost?
After this I won't need any help. Installed Linux(es) before...
