Could just be a dodgy burn try downloading the iso again and burning to a new cd.

no
same cd worked for other machines

i have tried booting with bare.i and old_cd.i
no good.

in the windows world, we have used the old reliable win98 system disk with generic cdrom support from oak technologies. worked with just about everything.
is there a similar thing in the linux/slackware world

What's your CDU attached to?

And the new one: what model is it, which IDE chipset has it got?


Cheers,

While your media might have worked before I happen to lean towards Samac. I have had media work then suddenly decide it didn’t wont to. If you have the means burn another cd/dvd and see if that works before trying delving into a hardware issues.

Try playing with boot-parameters

e.g.
bare.i noapic
or
bare.i hdb=nodma
(not sure about the last one, will have to look at the docu
in kernel/Documentation)

Also, do you know which model that IBM PII is? Might help
with assessing what's wrong... (7 digit part-number).




Cheers,
Tink

For Dell check what motherboard chip is used for ide drives. If you only have ide drives there should be no problem. Maybe test26.s install kernel or newer kernel will work. If you have sata and ide drives that's another kettle of fish.
For old ibm PS check if one of the boot disks from slackware install page is needed to use that cd drive.Or check the BIOS to boot from cd. Happy slacking!

Can you do me a favor? I have been thinking about your issue but I’m kind of confused on what exactly is happing.

It let’s you pick a kernel but fails right after?
At what part do you get the NotFound Error?

Is that the only error or is they’re more to it? Any info you can give would help.
