Smoothwall 1.0 Error on floppy Install (Error 0x10)

Post by J We » Thu, 23 Jan 2003 07:50:13

I am doing the http/ftp install of Smoothwall 1.0. After inserting
Floppy and allowing machine to boot I receive the message about Smooth
wall and the am prompted with the : 'Press RETURN to begin the
installation process.'

I press return and get:
Loading Smoothwall

It cranks away for a while and then I receive:
Error 0x10

Has anyone ever heard of this problem or experienced it? I don't think
it's the floppy.

Machine Details:
Old HP
Celeron 366
64 meg RAM
2 NICs 1 on board, 1 is a Netgear.

I don;t think the hardware is the problem because I am not even
getting to the prompt for the driver disk.



1. Original boot floppy: error 0x10

I just got the 1.2 meg "bare" file for Slackware 2.2.0.  I used
rawrite to build a 5 1/4 inch floppy boot disk.  After I get the boot:
prompt, I press enter, and after accessing the diskette a moment, it
comes back and says: Error 0x10, then prompts me with: Boot: ramdisk.

I get the same error with the other two images on the disk.  One is
mount, (the command I tried is: mount root=/dev/fd0).

I'm running on a 386 with 8 meg.  I got the boot image file as well as
the gzip and rawrite utilities from
