Thank you ;)
Well, I have more questions :
I enabled minix support, but it still doesn't work.
I will explain further what I made :
- I'm using the latest snapshot of debian 2.2 install (the one I found
- Since there's no support for Mylex with the default kernel provided
with this install I took the default 2.2.14 kernel and I enabled the
folowing features :
* Mylex DAC
* Intel Etherexpress (my network card ;))
* ramdisk support
* Minix filesystem (since your last mail)
- I replaced the 'linux' file with this brand new kernel
- I put all this on a CD with the following tree :
debian containing :
disks-1.44 containing :
The files I changed are marked (*)
- I start using DOS and launch the install (with the install.bat thing)
- The installs start allright :
* I select my keyboard
* I create swap and main partitions on the Mylex RAID array
* I format both...
- The install stops as soon as I try to 'Install Operating System Kernel
and Modules' :
* I select cdrom (since my install is on CD)
* the cdrom autodetection finds /dev/hda (wich is allright!)
* The install program asks to put the cd
* after a little led activity on my CD, the 'choose Debian archive
path' asks where the debian archive resides (/debian is what I made)
* I choose for instance list...
* The 'select archive path dialog appears, wich offers me one choice
of directory to use : /instmnt/debian
* THEN I got a 'floppy error' : The attempt to extract the rescue
floppy failed! Unformatted text also appears : Bad address - Bad file
- I tried to access to it with floppies with no more success...
I hope it wasn't too long, but I wanted to be as precise as possible,
since I don't know where the problems seems to come from.
Thanks again from your help.
