Debian install on beige G3 (Of 2.4)
I have been trying to install debian on my beige g3 minitower (g3-400, 512
Mb Ram, 18 Gig SCSI HD, DVD-ROM) and have been painfully unsuccesful.
I had already lost my previous OS 9.2 because of an unsuccesful attempt at
putting on YellowDog Linux, and so turned to debian. I read all the stuff
about getting the OS 8 boot floopy, running SystemDisk 2.3 to patch my
OpenFirmare 2.4. I haven;t found any helpful information about Debian
install settings, such as boot file name, to specify in OF.
Then when it comes to booting from the debian install floppy i get a
default catch error in Open Firmware when i type in "boot fd:0". I have
made at least 3 copies of the bootimage in Win2000 using rawrite and same
Can someone who was been thru deb install on this type of machine please
give me some advice.
