Installing Debian from floppies...
I'm new into the linux universe. Now I'm running RedHat 7.1 at my laptop, but
I want to test debian on my old desktop (P-90MHz/1GB/48MB).
I've done this:
- download the rescue.bin file
- formatting a floppy
- mounting it to see that it works and unmounting it again - no problems.
- use the "dd"-command-whatever (dd if=file of=/dev/fd0 bs=1024 conv=sync ;
sync)(file is replaced by rescue.bin)
- mounting and making a ll at /mnt/floppy to see the floppy + unmounting
Now I can boot up on this floppy. The problem appears while doing exactly the
same thing as the above, but with root.bin.
When I've used the "dd"-command-thing everything seems ok, but when I try to
mount the floppy following happens:
[root@localhost /root]# mount /mnt/floppy/
mount: you must specify the filesystem type
Do anyone have an idea of what's wrong?
