Problems with Peanut Linux installation


Hi,

I intially installed Slack 9.0 on an old 486, but had problems so I tried Peanut. I used a boot disk to boot to the CDROM and the hardrive couldn't read it at all. I did the same thing with a Slack 8.1 iso and got the same results. Shouldn't any iso be able to boot from the same boot disk?

I'm not sure that's true. I think its better to use the boot disks from the distro you are actually installing.

Also, if the boot disk is from 9.0 and you are booting 8.1, that COULD cause problems also...unless nothing's changed in the general booting area from one version to another.

Just to be safe, just use the images provided by the distro to eliminate that as a possible source of problems.
