I having trouble doing a floppy-less install off the Red Hat 3.0.3 CD.
The system: new Intel Pentium 100, Connor HD, Aztech CD.
The boot-off-the-CD install process can't seem to detect the Aztech CD drive.
If I select "Aztech etc" at the CD ROM screen and give no boot parameters,
later on the message appears "Aztech CD not found..." followed fairly soon
after by a kernel panic.
If I do the same thing, but supplying the boot parameter aztcd=0x170
(where 170 is the port as listed when the machine comes up in DOS) the
same thing happens.
I have also tried selecting "IDE/ATAPI" as the drive type, with various
combinations of "hdx=CD-ROM" where x ranges from a to d.
Still no joy.
Grateful for your help and guidance,
