I'm trying to install Linux from the CUE book. The sony is an atapi ide,
on a seperate controller, set as master. I used the NEC260 boot and root
install thingeys, and on the boot I get the message "NEC260 registered to
major #26." I can't read the messages from the root disk as they go by
way fast. setup then does not find the cdrom. mount doesn't mount,
although i can sometimes get th message ". . . as a read only device.,"
so it appears to mount, but the drive light never comes on for anything,
not even the boot disk. HELPME!!!!!
I can't wait to try to install the soundblaster awe32 to see what
problems it gives me. Is this system really worth all these hassles?
has anyone ever been able to install it smoothly?
