Post by Michael Delat » Sun, 01 Dec 1996 04:00:00


 I just install my second linux box by NFS and it succeed (the
installation) but when I boot it, the box hangs after this message :
"FDC 0 is a post-1991 82077"

 Do you know this ? where is the problem ?

 It 's installed from slacware 3.0, kernel 1.2.13. on a 486 DX2/80
with IDE and NE2000 card (that works good because of the NFS install)

Thanx a lot ...
