A plea for help - any assistance welcome!
My system: Elonex 486/33, 16Mb RAM
SCSI adapter Adaptec 1542, unit 7
HD is 1.2Gb SCSI, unit 0.
NEC SCSI CD-ROM, unit 2.
Linux distribution: Slackware v2.3 (book and CD of P.Volkerding et al)
There is no internal drive, Dos and OS/2 detect the HD primary
partitions Ok. The bootdisk preparations all fail, eg the "SCSI"
bootdisk (which should work as I understand the text) gives the
BusLogic SCSI: buslogic_out: failed(4): BusLogic SCSI: buslogic_stat:
aha1542_in failed(3): Unable to determine Adaptec DMA priority.
No BIOS32 extensions present. This release versions depends on it.
scsi: 0 hosts.
(and so on)
I get the gist of this, but dont know what to do about it. Using the
"COLOR144" rootdisk, I can get a ramdisk fs working, only none of the
/dev/sda* partitions respond.
Any assistance/suggestions gratefully recieved. Any suitable bootdisk
images out there ?
