Hi,

Are you swapping the cd at the boot screen?

You could do a ftp install using the 'lmo-installer.0.2.iso'.

How much would one of you folks who are running PIII, PC100 machines charge for a step by step commands and code explanations included on howto configure and install apps. for home file/webserver purposes? I am that desperate. But installed slackware12 using loadlin for boot .img and it is running this old PIII 600e, 640mb

Did you search on LQ or Google for your needs? There's a lot of information.

Your question or need is rather broad. What do you want to install? Most of the packages have information relative to the application installation.

If you mean when it comes up with the welcome screen to Slackware 10.2, yes I do. And it says that it cannot find the boot image.

If you swap the cds at that point in time you have to make sure the image you are trying to boot is on the new cd. Otherwise, it obviously won't work.

Hi,

That's why I asked when he was swapping the cd. You can use the 10.2 to boot the system and do the install.
