Unhappy ZipSlack boot problem!


Sers,
I have a Problem booting ZipSlack.
I unpacked it correctly and with all Paths and the Swapfile, onto the C drive of my old notebook. When I'm booting now, its loading VMlinuz and stuff. But then Suddenly the whole screen fills with chars and other symbols and a second later the notebook reboots.

Hopefully you can help me.

MFG,
Wirrun

i also tried it with boot disk.
But even there it only gets to the line, "uncompressing linux..."
And a few seconds later it crashs and for another few seconds
the screenbuffer is filled with various chars.

Probably an unzip problem. what did you untuip with? Is this running inside a windows installation? which windows?
what size and type are your partitions?
where is zipslack.zip being unzipped from?

It runs from MS-DOS 7.10!?
I unzipped it on my Desktop and packed it to 1.44 MB rar files which i copied to the Notebook and testet there, they were alright.
