I was trying to get mini-linux running and am encountering the
following error during boot:
"hd.c: ST-506 interface disk with more than 16 heads detected,
probably due to non-standard sector translation. giving up.
(disk 0: cyl=708, sect=63, head=32)"
then a few more things about not being able to mount the file system,
etc and it fails.
if I look in my CMOS, my HD is set up as cyl=1416 (half what
mini-linux sees), sect=63, heads=32 (twice what mini-linux sees).
anybody know if I can work around this? my reason for even trying
mini-linux is I don't have tons of free HD space to dedicate to a
full-blown linux set-up, and I only use it to dial in to work
occasionally. if someone can recommend a better version (monkey,
doslinux, ?) that has modem support and X, will work under DOS, not
huge, etc, that'd be helpful too.
