Re: Boot disks

Hi All,

This weekend I tried out the boot floppies on my Jensen.
The booting went fine, the install screen came up correctly.

OTOH two things are missing:
1st: There is no driver for the AHA1742 SCSI controller in the install
kernel. So I can't do an install.
2nd: The is no driver for the NE2000 ISA network card.

In my oppinion, the common network cards in the Jensen are: DE203, 205,
422 (the EISA one), and NE2000. But maybe I'm wrong.
So I think it is a good idea to include the drivers for these cards in the
installation kernel. If it fits on the floppy.


ps:Here is the booting message:
