:smash: I'm a newbie to the Linux game but have been using other UNIX's for a long time.
I download linux 7.2 and was trying to burn my own copy to a CDROM but found that it was to big to fit on a data CDROM formated under Windows Millenium. Then I read your not suppose to use a data CDROM format but then what format, no explanation at the RedHat site?).
Back to my question: So I ordered and received the Linux 7.2 CDROMS from Linux Central but the boot diskette I created had trouble recognizing the CDROM and so here I sit asking you why?
I created the boot diskette using the "rawrite ..\..\boot.img"
and it seems to be ok, but it says that the RedHat Linux7.2 CDROM is not in the HP CD-Writer 9100 CDROM drive when it really is in this drive. What gives, do I need soom kind of driver s/w, and if so how do I get it installed? I thought since my machines boot-prom can be set to boot off the CDROM drive that
I didn't have to use a boot diskette, but I could'nt get that to work so I'm stuck trying to use the diskette boot image method.
Seem to get stuck at every turn so far........
