DOS Floppy mount problem

DOS Floppy mount problem

Post by Palant » Sat, 05 Aug 1995 04:00:00



I am installing slackware 2.3 on a laptop 486/100. Once I boot the
miniroot I can mount the floppy drive but when I do an ls it spews i/o
read errors then some of the disk contents.  I am unable to install linux
because of this error.  Everything before that point goes smoothly.

The Laptop uses AMI bios 4701P, pcmcia slots, and a CHIPS vl-bus video
interface.  Any help would be appreciated.
