One day, Windows XP decided to be an ass to me, and soon later, i could no longer boot to XP. I do relize how to fix this issue and such, but I decided, enough with windows. So I decided I would download a copy of Red Hat (got it from bit torrent) and install it on my lap top. I figured, it would be my learning computer, and if i ended up getting good at it, and working well with it, then I would put it on my PC. Well, I am having troubles from the start, let me run ya down with a little about the lap top.
The lap top is a Dell Latitude CPi. 300mhz, 128mb of ram, 6 gb hard drive, ect. One of the main problems is, the lap top only has one removable bay. So I cant use both cd rom, and floppy. And i cant switch them out while the comp is running. Also, I cant get into the bios (Dell couldnt even tell me how), and the cd rom isnt bootable, only the floppy is.
So what I have tried so far is, making a windows 98 boot disk, and going into DOS and formating the entire hard drive. Then I created a Red Hat boot disk (using RawWrite) and then i popped it in, and started the Ret Hat install. The only problem is, it asks me where the ISO is, and when i change drives, it wont rechognize my cd rom. So here we have it, my delema, and spelling errors too!
I apreciate the help, thanks.
