does debian 1.2.x support umsdos
I have an AT&T globalyst 362TPC comuter with a s3 trio 64 chip set.
I am now using slackware 2.2 running linux 1.2.1 kernel as a umsdos
file system. It is working fine except I can't get xfx86 running.
I want to upgrade the linux kernel to 2.*.
I am interested in using debian as my linux because I had heard good
reports on debian.
I am interested in a new book from http://www.ssc.com "Linux
Getting Started, Version 3" which contains cd-rom with debian Linux
Does debian support umsdos? Does it have xf86? What version of the
linux kernel is in debian 1.2.x? I like umsdos because you
don't need lilo which can cause problems because it can mess up your MBR
and it is hard to configure. I also use loadlin to boot up from my dos
partition. umsdos also lets you access all your dos files as it can
coexist with dos.
Please answer by email.
Thanks in advance,
