I had tried a lot of configurations, but only this one worked for me on my
s712 box (make sure NOT to use ext3 on /boot):

                              Disk Drive: /dev/sda
                             Size: 9111591936 bytes
              Heads: 255   Sectors per Track: 63   Cylinders: 1107

    Name        Flags      Part Type  FS Type          [Label]        Size
    sda1        Boot        Primary   Linux/PA-RISC boot
24.68   (palo)
    sda2                    Primary   Linux ext2
32.91    /boot
    sda3                    Primary   Linux swap
    sda4                    Primary   Linux ext3
8792.83    /

Is there a good cockbook out there esp. for KDE2/keyb/mouse on s712, s720,
s715 boxes???
