I just purchaced the Infomagic Developer's Resource Linux kit. It came
with the Slackware 2.2 software (kernel 1.2). The CDROM I have is on an
IDE/ATAPI interface. When creating the boot and root floppies, I picked
the IDE/ATAPI kernel. I boot and it recognizes the CDROM. I create my
partitions (or rather recreate - I was using an old linux) and run
setup. I choose IDE drive for the source and pick my packages. It
starts to install (CD light flashes) and then errors out giving me a
unexpeced end of file for tar (the CDROM complains about a Buffer problem.)
Going out to root, I can see that the CDROM is mounted. I can cd to the
directory and look around. If I cat out a readme.lnx or readme.dos file
it will go so far then the buffer error.
Can anyone help?!!!!
