Odd. I just did a Caldera 2.2 install on my system (K6-2 400mHz, 96mb
SDRAM(66mHz), 6gb hdd, 2gb hdd, Riva TNT, 56k modem, 10bT ethernet, SB PNP)
last night. Ironically, I had more trouble with just booting from the CDROM
than I did from using the Windows 9x installation interface that Caldera
provided. I was really impressed.
I'm not sure what I think of their graphical bootup screen, though, or
their BootMagic loader instead of the traditional LILO interface. The
former seems to hide a lot of the readouts from the user (though dmesg is
available). Admittedly, I haven't looked into disabling it yet.
