Re: new installation

ok, i found a hfs boot floppy on the installation cdrom ..

when i boot with that i get first a small computer icon with tux in front,
then when it has done reading the disk, it changes to a framebuffer screen
but that seems to have a sync that is too high or so, ... i can see the
black screen and the tux icon on a messed up screen for a bit then it
changes to black screen and ejects the disk, ... then nothing more happens
... what do i have to do next and is there a way to chnge the resolution or
so of the boot disks framebuffer or so ?
