I had this problem as well. This is just the beginning of my problems.
Nearly every piece of hardware on my machine rejects linux. :-(
Here's my hardware:
850M IDE (>1024cly)
4GB Seagate SCSII(booting win95)
6plex 6x cdrom
Biggest problem is that I can't put the IDE in primary master without
conflicting with my booting SCSI disk. So the IDE drives fail
completely because there is nothing in the primary master slot.
I just got my 2940 kernel to boot without a problem, but this doesn't
help because the 6xCDrom and the 4GB disk will not mount anyway.
Is there a problem with this CDrom drive as well? It would be just
Once I tackle these problems, I will have to get X running with my video
Any suggestions on fixing the above problems?
: I'm in the middle of installing Linux (Slackware 2.2) and ran into
: problems with fdisk and my 4GB data disk. My system is as follows:
: P-133 32ram
: Buslogic 946C PCI SCSI
: 1 GB Seagate System Disk
: 4 GB Seagate Barracuda Data Disk
: Linux fdisk sees the 1GB drive fine but not the 4GB drive. Fdisk asks
: for heads, sectors, etc. I thought that Linux would have no problem
: with large SCSI drives as long as the SCSI adapter was supported.
: What's the deal?
