I purchased the RedHat 4.0 distribution (from RH, with manual), and
have not been successful with my installation. My CD is the [in]famous
Phillips/LMS cm206 with the cm260 controller. I have applied the patch
for 1.2.13, and the CD has always worked fine for me. I am unable to
instruct the RedHat installation tool where to find my CD drive.
My controller is patched to IO base port 0x300, irq 10. I haven't found
the magic format to enter this information into the RedHat screen which
starts: 'IO port, IRQ: cm206= ' and has a second line for "miscellaneous
options" -- Can anyone suggest the correct way to instruct RH's installation
kernel where to find my CD?
I looked in the /usr/include/linux directory on the CD and noticed the
parameters in the *.h file were port 0x340, irq 11. I jumpered my adapter
with those values, but it still failed both autodetection and my attempts
to manually enter the parameters.
Could I compile a version of 2.0.18 on my old a.out setup with gcc 2.6.3 and
expect it would work if I replace the 'vmlinuz' now on RH's boot.img with
my new kernel? Is this a reasonable approach?
