Hey, I've been searching around looking for the answer to this question for a few days. I've installed Slackware 8.1 on my pentium 4 with no problem and decided hey my AMD 900 has XP which is a giant pig so why not install slack on that also. Here's what happens. I DL'd the root and boot disks and my friend had burned me the slackware CD (unbootable unfortunatly) as I am on a 56k. Any way I boot from the boot disk and everything goes nicely untill asked to insert the first root disk. once I do that the screen gets multiple vertical bars and nothing else. Bars are a multitude of colors but usually stay in the brownish red and grey area. OK now this "was" a compaq that I kinda hacked the death out of. I think the problem is the intergrated :gringes: vid card. which is reported as an S3 prosavage I think it also says something like K133.. I also tried to install an old version of Mandrake and was unable to boot the system without getting GPF's. Any ideas or similiar experience??
