[SOLVED] Toshiba Portégé 3010CT
I posted a message yesterday asking for advice on installing Woody in a
Toshiba Portégé 3010CT. I was getting "Kernel panic: VFS Unable to mount root
fs on 01:00". I solved it and I am posting the solution for future reference.
Well... It was actually a mistake I made myself. I was trying to boot with
LOADLIN.EXE without stripping HIMEM.SYS off the RAM. All I needed to do was
to boot (argh!) Windows with no drivers at all.
After I did this, everything went on fine, except that, for some unknown
reason, the boot-floppies weren't able to configure my network (I use a
PCMCIA PCIC compatible slot with i82365 driver and a 3Com EtherLink III 589
card with 3c589_cs driver). I just opened another console, configured it with
ifconfig and route and that's it. I had no problems with the instalation
through the network.
P.S.: Just for reference, from Debian 3.0 CD I copied these files from
dists/woody/main/disks-i386/current/ to the Windows partition:
