Hi there again unSpawn.
Forgive me for being confused as I can't make sense of your post. Here are some things I think are relevant:
*The comp is an old Compaq Presario 2266 (233 MHz Cyrix M II 300 processor, 64 mb mem, 4 gb hd.)
*I have 14 disks total(as per instructions). 1 "bare.i", 1 "root", and 12 disks "a1"-"a12".
*I use "bare.i" as #1 disk to boot. I use "root" next, but it is supposed to be 1 of 3.
*I don't have nor do I know where to get the 3 "root" disks.
*I can't load root properly because I don't have all 3.
*The only prompt I have to enter args is at the beginning, right after I start up with "bare.i"
*I've tried adding 'init=/bin/sh' in as many ways as I can think of and it doesn't seem to make any difference.
*I don't have any chance to enter commands. The comp doesn't make it past loading root.
*It used to have win98 installed; There is a semblance of DOS ('MS-DOS MODE') that I can use to fdisk if I need to.
*I made a win98 bootdisk that creates a ramdrive and loads into it successfully. (proof that mem is good? I don't know)
Well, there it is(sorry if it's too long or useless). I hope this helps you to help me in some way.
