installing on an old 486
I'm trying to install Debian on an old 486 sx. From DOS, I put the Debian
CD in the drive, then did a "d:\install\boot" and it loaded up the
dbootstrap program as expected.
The installation procedure works fine until I get to the "Install OS
Kernel and Modules." When it asks for a install media, I choose CD-ROM.
I selected /dev/hdc and it says mount failed. I actually went through all
choices (all /dev/hdx) and the mount always failed.
Could the problem be the CD-ROM is some strange proprietary interface that
the installer can't talk to?

"I was just reading the interview with Korn in _Guitar_World_, and one of
the guitarists said they don't play guitar solos because they've been
done. Well, I guess that's true if you stick with what's been done.
But you have to look beyond that; there's a lot more left to say on the
guitar." -- Warren Haynes of Gov't Mule
