I am still trying to get that darned RH 7.2 on my toshiba laptop-still no luck..I've pretty much given up on the install via PCMCIA Cd-rom-as I keep getting stuck at the "initializing PC Card services" screen & then nothing..yesterday- I created directories on my DOS partition hard drive as follows:
copy Q:\RedHat\base C:\RedHat\base
copy Q:\RedHat\RPMS C:\RedHat\RPMS
-No Trouble copying the files as I have a W98 boot disk that I created for my PCcard CDrom so I can use the cdrom in dos (just wont boot from the Cdrom itself on power-up)
From what I've read & heard I 've done my part correctly-Now, what I need to know is this...When I boot my laptop using the boot.img floppy & get to the part of the install that asks me where the .iso images are...(/dev/hda1) Where (or how) do I point the installer in the right direction? Because I have yet to see anywhere in my readings as to what command I use or anything..
I've tried /tmp/Redhat..also just /tmp..I am confused...
p.s. The install went beautifully on my desktop..FIPS worked like a charm to shrink the partition that W98 was eating up all this time-no lost data....hoo-ray!
