Re: trying to install slink from cdrom on ds10...
Okay, I've gotten to "Install Operating System Kernel and Modules". My
filesystems are mounted, it asks what device I want to install off of, I
say fd0, it asks for the Rescue Floppy and installs it. I've got the
2.2.12 kernel on the Rescue Floppy, so I'm assuming that it installs the
2.2.12 kernel on the hard drive.
But then it asks for the Drivers Floppy.... The Slink Drivers Floppies
won't work with the 2.2.12 Kernel, will they? Plus, when I look at the
file system there's a /target/lib/modules/2.2.2-ac7 directory that's chock
full of goodies. Again, I'm assuming that those are courtesy of the
I guess my question is, what should I do at the "Driver Floppy" prompt.
