Re: Can't boot linux on IBM 43P-150
Thanks to everybody for your help, I found a boot floppy on SuSE ftp which
boot the 43P-150 !
It's a 2.4.17 CHRP kernel but neither the SCSI interface nor network
interfaces are detected :-(
I use a debian root disk but now I can't go further than the boot and root
disk (the installation start but no hd and no net card are detected).
Is someone know where i can find a kernel for my system ? I need support for
IBM SCSI device adapter.
