What did I do wrong?


I installed Icepack Linux 2.0 on a blank drive. The installation seemed to go without any problems but when I boot the machine I select Icepack from the boot manager (only option right now) and then I just get a blinking cursor. Nothing else comes up.

All help is greatly appriciated.

Which boot manager (Lilo, Grub)? Knowing that will help to define a fix for your predicament!!

I used the default boot manager for Icepack. Found on this page. http://www.icepack-linux.com/managers.html

I just did a standard install. It seemed prety simple and straight forward.

Is there a way to replace the bootloader? I have no problem with doing a reinstall since this is the exact reason I built a seperate machine for testing purposes. I did it this way because I know next to nothing about Linux and it is better to screw up a machine with no information on it than to screw up your main machines.

Nothing yet because the drive ate the floppy. I will be trying again when I get home after work with the new drive.
