Installing a kernel off CD-ROM
Is there any way to install a kernel on the hard drive off the install
CD-ROMs (without going through the whole Install process)?
Currently, I have the 2.4.18-k6 kernel installed on my hard drive, but it
doesn't seem to have ppp enabled (dmesg brings up no mention of ppp).
I'm a little surprised, I would've thought a kernel I downloaded as a .deb
off debian.org would have ppp enabled, but still... (did I do something
wrong during the install, I wonder?)
If I want to reach the Internet I currently have to boot the 2.4.18-bf2.4
kernel off the world's slowest floppy boot disk ;)
Plus, floppy booting, it doesn't read Grub's menu.lst so never invokes
hdb=ide-scsi that I need for cdrecord, though I assume I could change
syslinux.cfg on the floppy:
APPEND root=/dev/hdc2 ro
by changing the last line to
APPEND root=/dev/hdc2 dhb=ide-scsi ro
Anyway, back to the CD-ROM, is there any way to use the kernel images on that
to just put a vmlinuz-xxx in /boot that I can call with Grub, without
going through the Install process again (because last time I did that, I
broke things :(
Or do I need to do another 5MB download of a .deb from debian.org?
