Now I have another problem. The cause of the last problem was it was trying to load the pcmcia driver before the main installation. So i disabled it using linux nopcmcia at the main boot screen.
Now that linux has finally installed.... it goes to start the pcmcia up on startup and crashes again. I need to use pcmcia devices, so this cant be disabled in the bios, plus cant do that anyway because it dont give me the option to.
really p*ssed of now, installed redhat 8, goes through the install with out any boot param's unlike redhat 9. However, when the system boots for the first time after the installation gues what..... halts and crashes on "starting pcmcia"
This is doing my t*tties in, and thinking of going over to windows xp.
The only thing I can do is access the options in grub right at the beginning. Is there anything there i can do to stop the pcmcia from starting.
Pressing I to go into interactive mode is pointless... before it enters, it tries to start pcmcia up...
PLEASE HELP, IM A MAN ON THE EDGE AND READY TO BREAK SOMETHING.......
