Re: model 150 almost there


Thanks for the help, but I have since solved the problem.  I rebuilt the
kernel without /dev fs support and
I have reached the next screen where I config the keyboard.

I need to know how to parition the disk now.  Do I create the partitions
like I normaly do in intel or
do I need to create a disk label like partition as in Sparc?

Thanks again for the help.  Hollis gave me the devfs tip in #debianppc

It would seem you're trying to mount the cdrom using the "mount previously
initialized filesystem" menu entry. Right? Don't do that. You should
partition the harddisk and then mount/initialize the resulting partitions,
then later on, when the installation procedure gets to the point of
installing thing, select cdrom :-)
