Re: debian 1.3 on thinkpad 760xl


On the IBM thinkpad 760, you must use the tecra boot disk in the
special directory, and not the standard bootdisk.  If you build your
own kernel, you must build it with 'make zimage' and not 'make
bzimage'.  The thinkpad will hang as you describe otherwise.

The alternative, as you may have discovered, is to use loadlin to 
boot from DOS.
