Re: Installation with BT-930
You have an interesting problem.
The BIOS on the BT-930 is responsible for booting the kernel. It is doing
that just fine. However, the kernel doesn't know about the BT-930, and it
can't do anything once booted.
** The BT-930 is not supported by the bootable CD-ROM.

I don't follow you here. The kernel actually stopped after initalizing
the md driver? Which image was this, exactly?

You're getting error messages because you don't have that hardware installed.
It is normal behavior.
You _should_ be able to use the 2.0.30 "special" images. If those don't
work (please confirm), let me know and I will compile a custom kernel for
you to put on the rescue disk.
