I have slackware running at home and wanted to put it on a school computer (with permission of course
its a cisco class) Its a Dell Dell OptiPlex GXi. I used the color.gz and bare.i images in linux
dd if=bare.i of=/dev/fd0
dd if=color.gz of=/dev/fd0
No errors are reported, tried the color.gz on who knows how many floppys. The bare kernel works but when it gets here
RAMDISK: Compressed image found at block 0
It reads the disk for a while an just sits there. I know there is plenty of RAM (288 mb enough?
Any clues to this problem? I can't boot to the cd-rom. Even with the "Smart Boot Manager" (returns 0x00 or something in a small red box)
Just so you know I'm trying to install 9.1
The install.1 and install.2 images don't work either (stalls on install.2, it clams that umbdos section 0 is a bogus size if I remember correctly)
Thanks for any help!
