Red Hat installation problem

Post by Thomas Bontrage » Fri, 11 Oct 1996 04:00:00


I'm having an installation problem with Red Hat 4.0 that seems to have
something to do with ramdisks. I'm trying to install using the single
boot floppy in a: and the CD-ROM (a message says that the drive has been
recognized). The kernel on my boot floppy sets up 16 ramdisks, according
to a message, but later it tells me that there is no memory available to
load--the message goes:

        no ramdisk found at 500.

Above, there turned out to be a listing of "space available for
loading." It was all zeros.

Much thanks, and please email me directly if possible.

installation.   I can't get past the born shell.  When I enter the command
startx,  the system goes blank and a message appears stating that the server

clock my card has.  I know that it has I 3D Labs chip set, but that's about

Thanks in advance
