I have a 300 series IBM ThinkPad that I am trying to load Slackware's
version of Linux. It does not have a CD-ROM, only FDD. After reading the
newsgroups, the majority of Linux users seem to believe that Slackware is
easiest for FDD only computers.
Also after reading the postings, it had suggested to write down everything
error and keystroke that I enter...so here goes nothing.
IBM ThinkPad 300 series
HDD = 120MB
1st Partition = 20MB /MS-DOS
2nd Partition = 100MB /Linux to be
bootdisk = bareapm.I
rootdisk = color.gz
I loaded the boot disk
VFS: insert root floppy
VFS: cannot open root device 02:1c
Kernel Panic: VFS: unable to mount 02:1c
I am new to this. What do the above lines mean? And how can I resolve them?
