: Things I've Done/Accomplished:
: 1. Formatted & Defragged HD
: 2. Installed Disk Mgr
: 3. Installed Dos62
: 4. Ran FIPS (Dos size 600MB, Linux 1GB)
: 5. Booted w/Linux Boot Disk  (pas16.s)
: 6. Set up 16 MB swap partition
: 7. Set up Remainder as Linux
: 8. Formatted Linux partition
: 9. Configured Swap Partition (mkswap and swapon)
: 10. Selected only Linux partition as target
: 11. Selected CD as Target

Do *not* select CD as both source and destination.

: 12. Selected CD as source
:       Tried SCSI/pas option and SCSI option - failed to detect drive
: 13. did research
: 14. Used a variety of permutations with the following as variables:
:               a. ports (0x0140, 0x340)
:       b. IRQs (10, 7, 255)
:       c. bootdisks (pas16.s, scsinet.s)
:       d. "max_scsi_luns=1"  (also tried 0)
:       e. cd type in install prgm (scan for drive, scsi, pas)
