Re: Install with new potato boot-floppies
68K-People of linux:
Is there a howto on making the boot-floppies?
I have searched many places and am unable to find them.
I need to create a Rescue-Rescue disk.
The kernel crashes before starting kswap.
My board self-tests as ok.
The problem could be Interrupt or memory related. I need to
add code to the kernel to find and fix.
What is the kdbg, I can't find info on that either.
Thanks for the 2.2.10 boot-floppies, I'll put them to good use.
