Re: Can't boot up from resc1440tecra.bin
Last night, I too verified that the Hamm Tecra disks are *not* working as
advertised.... This includes both the April 11 and April 26 (just made
available on Monday) versions....
I've got a Tecra 740.
Bo disks worked fine.
I finally got an install going by downloading base_20.tgz and other required
files to my Win95 partition and installing from there... But, of course,

as lilo loaded and started the kernel. I got around this by creating a
"clean" kernel on my desktop system and creating a boot diskette with it
(remember to rdev it as required....<grin>...). Once I got the Tecra
booted, I manually installed this new kernel onto the notebook (lilo.conf
and a `lilo`) and I was "in business". Now, after a few nights work - in
total - I've got this system working quite nicely.... except for a Netscape

method.... But, I just thought I'd rant a bit and let you know that you're
not the only one with this problem... Oh, and to let you know how I got
