Hi to all.
New to linux but determined, yesterday i installed Slackware 8.0 on my computer. The install was long but seemed to go ok. At the finish i rebooted as instructed and lilo recognized by other OS and i booted back to slack.
The boot process seemed to go ok just to following sequence of events:
I get, Welcome to Linux 2.2.19 (tty1)
localhost login: "here i type in root as instructed during the install"
password: "again the password i typed in during install"
Then i get the following:
last login (with the date)
you have mail.
Last night i dreamed i ate a ten pound marshmallow, and
when i woke up the pillow was gone.
Now whatever i type in here the same message keeps coming back. Bash command not found.
So for now i am still unable to boot all the way into slack. The message seems amusing and is probably taking the mickey out of me. But would be grateful if someone could tell me what i am doing wrong............many thanks.
My specs. Athlon1.4/Abit K7/GeForce 2Pro/512ddr/SBlive.
I have two hard drives, the first is entirely Win XP Pro and the second one is for the linux install........
