I did, and it did thanks. Win95 runs fine now......just Linux won't :(
If I try to boot from the installation disk, I get as far as it
recognising all my IDE connections, and then it halts, and I get a
flashing cursor. On pressing Alt+F4, i get the following error
hdb: irq timeout: status=0x50 (this one I get four times, and then
hdd: ATAPI reset complete
This is followed by a few more of the first error message, and then:
end-request: I/O error, dev 03:40, sector Q
And then the cycle starts again.
My original setup when I had the Win95 problem was:
IDE 1: Master 6.4GB HDD (Win95), Slave 5.1GB HDD (Linux)
IDE2: Master LS120 drive (also floppy), Slave CDROM drive.
My current setup is:
IDE1: Master 6.4GB HDD (Win95), Slave CDROM drive
IDE2: Master 5.1 GB HDD (Linux), Slave LS120 drive.

System resources 52% free (I've a lot of apps open at the moment)
File System 32 bit
Virtual memory 32 bit
Disk compression Not Installed
PC cards No PCMCIA sockets installed.
I am probably running compatibility mode, as I tried slaving the LS120
drive to my Win95 drive, and it was never going to boot up.
Hope this is enough info. Come back if you need more.
