Failed Slackware install
I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro 400CS P1 laptop with a 775 mb HD & 40 mb ram....
I installed slack 4.0 via floppy
only the "A" set was installed and I used a boot floppy to load the system once install finished....thats when my problems started....the vmlinuz screen turned into a long running what looked like assembly language code that would only stop by powering off.....
I have no other way of getting an OS on this laptop as It has no CD-Rom and I have no NIC card for it...and it has no modem...nor can I aford another laptop..
needless to say I am lost at this point and honestly want to knoe what "I" did wrong
any help will be greatly apreciated
You should post some of the output here to see what it says.
3rd try is a charm
I did everything the same and boots JUST FINE now...
what I was getting was
and was srolling the whole screen
I have no idea what caused it
so I have A & Y packages installed...now the tricky part is going to be getting X windows on here...I have a PLIP link but it is to a Windows 2000 machine...and I'll still need the N packages before I can network I believe...unless I only need a certain file for PLIP direct link..
Lilo wasn't set up correctly.
