You can't install sarge with 2.6 kernel, but you can install it
after the installation succedes, but there exists no hardware
configuration. This means, you have to manualy populate /etc/modutils
with the correct command line for the dasd modules (dasd is not longer
compiled in) and the network device configuarion in the sysfs.

The installer recognize my NIC LCS, but it doesn't work, I don't know how yet, but in console, I write "ifconfig eth0" and receive a error that says "Device not found" and assing the IP Address to interface sit0.

We never had the chance to test a LCS NIC as all new machines have qeth.


Another dream that failed.  There's nothing sadder.
