I'm new to Linux and I'm trying to install via cdrom to my laptop, which
has an Adaptec 1460 SCSI card. I've tried both slackware and redhat
with the following results:
Slackware 3.1: The cdrom is not recognized when using the standard disk
images. Using scsi.s or ata152x.s causes the machine to hang after the
message 'VFS: Mounted root: (minix filesystem)'. My keystrokes echo,
but no prompt or response.
Redhat 4.0: Using the PCMCIA supplement, supp.img, during installation
it told me: 'PCMCIA Probe Failed', and of course, I can't access the
I don't know what to do now, do I have to make floppies somehow? Is
there anything else I can try before resorting to this? My dream would
be a root disk for slackware with 1460 support.. I know the drivers
exist as kernel modules..
Thanks so much..
