Or boot from tomsrtbt (http://www.toms.net), create a partition with a
reasonable size (I usually use 10MB, but you might get around with
less), put the rootdisk in the diskdrive, and do
gunzip -c /dev/fd0 > /dev/hda4
or so. Next, boot with the rescue disk, and use
Of course, you'll want to replace '/dev/hda4' with where your partition
really is. Once the installation is done, you may be able to reuse that
partition as swapspace (better make sure /dev/hda3 is swapspace, too, so
that you don't end up with too many swap partitions)
If this sounds like too complicated, there's a HOWTO written on this
subject. I installed my AST PowerExec 4/25sl ColorPlus exactly that way
(although I only learned about the HOWTO later on).
