Need a HPT ATA66 module for HDD?


D:\Col\Launch\Floppy\Rawrite3.com gets me to source file: ok but when I put in Install.144 I get no such dir found and no such file found. I have changed the syntax to every possible combo but nothing. The file does show up in the Col\Launch\Floppy\ as Install.144 and under properties it is designated as a read only wthin win98 when I explore the cd. What can I do? I finally got the courage to install this cd of open linux caldera. Any suggestions is greatly appreciated. Thanks

You might want to try a GUI rawrite for Wintendo, works on W9x and NT, just select the image, select the floppy drive and go...

Try running this command:
cd D:\Col\Launch\Floppy

Then try running Rawrite3.com again.

I will try that again but i ought to tell you I hav tried it tons of times w/ the same results but I am determined to use this cd ver of linux. lol Can you show me the command line for xcopy of col\launch\dos to my dos c: drive? I can try copying the entire contents of those three folders and the attempt to run install.bat from it. Seems that I am having trble installing frm the cd. Thanks
Spawn I tried to use GUI but downloaded it and can't open it. Its a zip file and I don't know how to open them. Don't have any unzip programs and the ones I hav downloaded in the past I cldn't figure out how to use. They all seem to create alot of extrenuous steps to opening and running files? Thanks

I'm sorry about my instructions. I haven't used msdos much. I should have told you to enter e: first then cd \col\launch\floppy.

As for ata66 support, Caldera's site has this page that says openlinux 2.4 and before cannot use them for installation. You can use them after installation, but it requires you to recompile the kernel. Your version of linux is old. On their site they refer to it as a retired product. You should try to get a newer version of linux.

For what it's worth, I found this page about using xcopy. Good luck.

Hey no criticism here on your instruc. they were good and helped me solve the problem... the order was correct and in fact you had to create a dos prompt that included col\launch\floppy or dos> to run the rawrite3 and install.bat No apology called for. Thank u As for a newer version I am obscessed with this oldie and I will get it up and running and learn whatever it takes to compile you said that kernel. lol Matter of fact am going to roll my box back to IDE and ATAPI if need be. lol I am not a spd demon... lol just love putting things together taking them apart and making it all better for thewear. Thanks for the link... Stay well
