Yeah, that would be a problem :)
Yup, that was it. I just recently began to understand kernel modules, but
in my quest to keep the image size down, I tried to make everything one.
Yes, there is a limit to SILO image size, it's around 3.5 Meg. It doesn't
matter if its gzipped because its unzipped to the memory space with the
limit. It's not a hardware issue per se, there's a decent thread here:
Now I boot through the filesystem stuff, but I still get stuck here:
Hdc: ATAPI 32x CD-ROM drive, 128kB Cache
Uniform CD-ROM driver Revision: 3.12
The keyboard lights flash once and it locks. Booting with the SILO -p
option is pretty useless because it clears out too quickly a few times and
the reboots. Stop+A doesn't work during the sequence. Is there a way to slow
this down or something?
What about my input stuff?
# CONFIG_KEYBOARD_ATKBD is not set
Sorry for being so difficult. I'll appreciate this amount of control once I
have it working ;-).
