thinkpad install prob
I formatted this for submission to the bugs list, but it seems
such a basic problem that I suspect it stems from my status
as an absolute novice with linux--and so I'm posting here.
package: boot floppies
version: linux 2.0.36 (kernel-image-2.0.36_2.0.36-3)
arch: i386 (pentium I)
model: IBM Thinkpad 760EL
card: 3com 3C574TX (16bit 10/100BASE-TX)
When I try to boot from the rescue floppy (downloaded from the
ch-install-methods.en.html#s-file-descs> area and written to
floppy with rawrite2 in DOS), the install hangs after the following:
boot: linux floppy=thinkpad
Loading root.bin . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Loading linux . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
it should detect hardware at this point, yes? It does not (at least
not in an hour or so), and no error messages appear. Sound familiar
BTW this model TP does not boot from CD
Thanks In Advance
