I am using slink on an IBM ThinkPad 755c with a separate DOS 6.2 partition. My problem is that when I try to boot debian from a .bat file or from the command line, loadlin gets to where it is uncompressing the kernel and then halts the system with the message 'ran out of input data'. I have copied my kernel from my /boot partition and placed it on my DOS partition just like so:
cp /boot/vmlinuz-2.0.36 /dos/debian/vmlinuz
My debian.bat file looks like this
c:\debian\loadlin.exe c:\debian\vmlinuz root=/dev/hda2 floppy=thinkpad
There is nothing out of the ordinary in the debug output. There is plenty of room in the setup buffer to accommodate the setup size. And my system boots just fine from the boot disk. I'm at a loss for what else to look at.
If any one could help I would really appreciate it. I am not a member of this list, so when you reply, please leave my email in the Cc: box.
