Im trying to install slack 8.1, and am completely new to Linux, also am running window 98 atm. I got a fairly old P166 / 24Mb RAM. Right, I've tried and tried to boot off the CD, and even though the option in the BIOS is there, it wont let me, so I've resorted to the boot and root disk option. Got the boot disk fine [bare.i] and when i reboot it all loads up great. The only problem is that everywhere I've looked, all the root disk files [color.gz etc] are all WAY too big to fit onto a floppy. The old root files for 7.3 for example fit on fine, but don't work obviously. I really would appreciate any kind of help. Many thanks - Craig.
