: : I first booted with the first disk of the ftp version on plan9 and

: : (c:\>plan9\b) and tried to install the other disks it said that there was
: : an error, or insuficent disk space, but i know that ther are 250 megs
: : free on my 340 meg IDE hard disk. Do I need more space, or is it
: : configured wrong?
: : [ Most likly it is configured wrong. You need to have free space beyond the
: : dos partition, not within it -- mod ]
What might be helpful, or rather when I eventually took the install docs
literally, is NOT to format the partition you intend to put Plan9 on,
otherwise it thinks it hasnt got one and will come back with the message
about not enough free space.
I've seen mentioned that Plan9 goes okay on laptops-and although not
after specific vendor endor*ts (:) any got any suggestions for a nice
off the shelf laptop that it'll go okay on?, and further to which---SCSI
