Re: Install dies trying to loop mount rescue.bin
The box has the neccessary fpu and pmmu, it also has 17mb ram. As I said

program will correctly find my hfs partition, mount that and find the

rescue.bin and root.bin. However, when the install tries to loop mount
these files, it dies. VC3 says that mount failed with an invalid argument.

years of this mailing list. I've seen no mention of this problem though.
I'm still playing with the system trying to figure it out, any help would be
