Need help with Linux booting on a new system. I intalled the Debian 3.0 on a new box (1.4GHz Athalon w/ 128 Mb DDR). I had no problems installing the kernel onto an old 4Gb hard drive.
However, when it came to configuring the boot sequence, I allowed it to be placed into the MBR. I don't know if that was a mistake?
My partition structure is /hda/ (3.8Gb Linux Primary - bootable) and /hd5/ (451Mb Linux Swap). I experimented with a small bootable partition, but the installing software didn't like that (or I did something wrong in the installation?).
The symptoms are:
(1) the system boots normal
(2) Lilo starts and displays the dots . . . . .
(3) After approx. 30 seconds, it returns to new line with the following error "Error 0x10"
(4) The sequence begins all over again...
The only way to exit the sequencing is to reboot or turn the system off.
Does anyone have any ideas why this is happening?
Thanks for all your help.
