Re: Debian Insatll Compaq XP 1000

Can you boot with bf24 ? I don't  know if that is an option for the
alpha, but  you can give it try.

i would disconnect the second hdd, install with 2.2.20, switch to 2.4.x
and reconnect the hdd. Building boot-floopies will take much much more.
I did that several times.
