To whom it may concern,
I have 3 cd's of Debian potato2.219pre17.
The system is a Pentium 233 asus motherboard with matrox video card sound card and a network card and a 4gb fujitsu with 64 mg mem.
I think is good enough for what I read. I want to use it as an ISP server.
I was doing extremely well until the wife call me for dinner, I was in the proses of setting the password by the time I came back the screen went to sleep and could not wake it up.
Switched it off and can not get it going.
If I boot it from the floppy it goes to it loading and it get to the stage of "Warning: unable to open an initial console.
Kernel panic. No init found. Try passing init=option to Kernel."
If I load from cd it shows a window explaining that:
"This si a Debian installation System, boot floppies 2.2.23 keep it once................................
this installation set was built on 2001-04-14 by Adam Di Carlo.
if I choose to "continue" it shows a blue screen with a message partially covered by ASCII #. Then if I press enter, "next config keyboard" I enter then "error loading the keymap i386/querty................. follow by blue screen with the warning "bad tar header,skipping.
"Aiee, Killing interrupt handler
Kernel Panic:attempt to kill the idle task in interrupt handler- Nosyncing.
Could you please advice what to do next.
