Post by Spaz » Mon, 04 Sep 1995 04:00:00

  Just trying to install linux, trying hard, no ducumentation which
makes sense, and here I am with a boot disk, and it starts loading
ramdisk (what's that?) and then goes nuts with the messege

  child #+ died with ff00

  Any ideas?  

  Thanks for any help.

           We all know what our own dreams mean deep down,
   Yet most of us are accepting the "proven" answers of psychology.  
                               Go figure.


1. Linux won't boot- "child # died with code ff00" message

  After installing only the A set of disks for slackware and reboot I
get this message a zillion times after linux recognizes my hard drives
(and before any login prompt).  The # changes from 1 to something like
20000 and then flips back again.  I have tried to boot from the floppy
I made and also directly from the hard disk but I get the same result
each time.
  Ok, a few things about my system.  I have a 486/66 clone motherboard
(intel processor) with 16M ram and an ISA video card.  I am using a
promise 2300+ controller and have a DOS disk as HDA (850M) and my
linux disk is 340M (which I partitioned so I could have a swap file).
Linux was able to read from HDA for the installation and write to HDB.
  Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can fix the problem?  

Thanks for all of your help in advance!
