 Hi. I am trying to install the base Red Hat 2.1 onto my system with floppies.
I have used the rawrite utility to make the boot, ramdisk, make, and base
floppies. I get as far as the menu that asks me what I want to install, ie
X windows, perl, etc. At this point, it says that the base system will be
installed by default, so it is not listed as a menu option. This is where the
error occurs. When I hit return, it says an error has occured, returned -1, hit
return to view the results. When I do, it says mount -t ext2 /dev/hda2 /mnt/.
Since I am trying to do a floppy install, shouldn't it be
mount -t ext2 /dev/fd0 /mnt/? Perhaps I should give this option at the boot
time, ie, boot: linux mount -t ext2 /dev/fd0 /mnt/. Would this work?

Don't know much about RedHat, but i suppose, the installation is
similar to slackware.

There the mount-command refers to the destination(!)-partition, so it
won't be /dev/fd0.

Most probably you forgot to initialize the ext2-filesystem on the
destination partition (mkfs) or the mount point /mnt doesn't exist
(mkdir) or it's a file instead of a directory.

1. Q: nash shell does not support "mount -t ext2 -o ro /dev/hda1 /mnt"

Hi,
I want to build a ramdisk.
Thus, I need a linuxrc file.

My linuxrc file is

#!/bin/nash

mount -t ext2 -o ro /dev/hda1 /mnt
zcat /dev/hda1/boot/ram.img.gz > /dev/ram
...
umount /dev/hda1

When I boot with this ramdisk, I got kernel panic for "mount unexpected
argument".

How can I mount using nash?
Can I use any other shell without adding more file?

Regards,
Bokyun Na
