re: Installing Debian from Red Hat (without a CD or floppy drive)
When we last left our hero, he was trying to install Debian onto a machine
with no floppy or CD drive, but with a working Red Hat installtion....
Thanks to this list, I was able to get good instructions on how to do
a cross-install using a chroot jail. I tried them, and things went
well, up to the point were I actually tried to boot into the new Debian
When I tried to boot, the only thing that happened was the computer
beeped at me and then rebooted. Obviously, something went wrong, but
I don't know what.
I was using GRUB as the bootloader, and I pointed it at the /boot
directory on the Debian partition. It seemed to locate the kernel I
specified correctly. (Specifying it wrong gave me a different error.)
I'm also using a mini-itx motherboard, if that makes a difference.
Can anyone give me an idea of what went wrong?
