Installation Of Slackware Linux 8.1
Im a newbie to linux and decided to try it Slackware Linux. I've probley tried to install this thing about ten times but kept failing.
Anyway, booting off the diskittes and creating a parpartion of a the hard drive wasn't really hard as much. Its at the end of the setup that im having trouble with.
setting a target to the parpartion, and selecting the source media wasn't trouble as well. My current problem is, I tried to install the full installation of slackware that included in the package. It ranked up around 2 gigs. After it was complete, I did the reboot. After booting, No operating system was detected and couldn't install.
I went threw the entire process again, and chose newbie instead. The following error I recived was
Your source device cannot be accessed properly
Please be sure that it is mounted on /var/log/mount/slackware, and that the slackware disks are found in the subdirectores of /var/log/mount/slackware like specified.
I was wondering if I need some third party tool to mount the files and install?
EDIT: I found out that problem, but the packages couldn't have installed quickly. The screen flickered, and it required me to reboot.
