Re: Install problems: Potato / boot disks 2.2.5
Obviously, we can't support mix-and-match slink / potato
installations. At this point, the sole concern of this group is the
I would appreciate, Terry, if we could focus on the install problems
in onto your system in the pure potato world. You say:

I have absolutely no idea what this is -- any clues, anyone?

This sounds like unrelated problems in modconf to me. I hope these
are fixed in the new modconf. We'll be burning a new boot-floppies
2.2.6 with this problem I hope fixed.
However, for your report to be more effective, I really do need more
explicit information regarding at exactly what stage the errors were
emitted, and what the error messages exactly were.
