Subject: Cannot read /floppy/type.txt : Invalid Argument
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"
X-Mailer: AOL 4.0 for Windows 95 sub 10
model: CBM Computer Systems
I chose 'Installing from a DOS partition'.
Was able to partition hard disk with 'cfdisk.'
DOS partition: Boot, Primary, 1.9GB
Linux partition: Boot. Logical, 120MB
Linux swap partition: Logical, 32MB
When I got to Install Operation System Kernel and Modules part, I specified
harddisk as the source and the program was able to locate the directory where
the files are but then gave me the message: "Cannot read /floppy/type.txt:
invalid argument" , and won't let me go on.....
I activated 'ash' (Alt-F2), and check to see if such file exist and I saw it.
But I could not open it with edit command (access denied). There was a
type.txt in the root directory and I was able to open this one with edit......
Spent all day today. and I feel like I almost there....
Would appreciate your help.
