Proper Boot Option: Root For Floppy Install -Libretto110CT
Trying to install Slack10 on my ol' Libretto 110CT subnote....
Using external PCMCIA Toshiba floppy drive and an external PCMCIA EXP 2400P CDRW/DVD drive.
Problem with ol' Librettos is you can't boot up with CD drives only floppy or hard drive...
Also, don't have a desktop PC to temporalily install hard drive in and to install Slack onto it that way....
Made boot floppies:
Disk 1: scsi2.s
Disk 2: Install.1
Disk 3: Install.2
Disk 4: PCMCIA.DSK
Can boot into first part of install OK with Disk 1. Asks what boot options I want if any.
First time I tried, I just typed scsi2.s. After a bunch of text, good error message that said I needed to specify boot option with 'root=xxxx'....
So tried entering: scsi2.s mount root=/dev/hda1
This was a suggestion listed after the error message...
Again, got same error message....
So, would greatly appreciate if someone could advise as to:
1) Was 'scsi2.s' a good choice for boot disk?
2) If not, what would you recommend?
3) What should I enter for the boot option???
4) Any other suggestions??
Thanks for any advice!
