Help, i have a weird install problem !
I have a dual boot box (win98 and RH 8.0) [2 IDE 40 GB drives, one for each OS.]
after installing *all* of rh 8.0 in the second disk, installing grub on the
MBR of the first disk, and rebooting, i get this message:
filesytem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18-14 ro root=LABEL=/ hdh=ide-scsi
[linux.bzImage, setup=0x1400, size=0x10ea0d]
Err 28: selected item cannot fit into memory
Press any key to continue...
so, what is going on here ? i dont know in what units the size is measured, but my
512MB of main memory should be plenty...
i had chosen all the defaults for the RH 8.0 install (auto-partitioning, etc.) -- i expected it to work !
thanks -- josie
ps: the hardware config is as follows:
- A7V8X ASUS mobo -- 1900+ AMD K7 Athlon XP -- 512 MB
- 2 40 IDE GB hard disks (first drive for win98, second for rh 8.0)
(on oboard IDE controller)
- DVD ROM (on onboard IDE controller)
- CD RW 48x16x48x (on onboard IDE controller)
- LS-120 (instead of floppy drive) (on PCI card IDE controller)
- 64MB GeoForce4 AGP
- Dell monitor (oldie)
- MS web keyboard (102 standard keys plus web keys)
- intelimouse PS/2
