network boot - HELP!!!

network boot - HELP!!!

Post by Mike Dougla » Sat, 16 Dec 1995 04:00:00

I am attempting to load Yggdrasil Linux onto a Dell laptop using the
network load option provided on the Yggdrasil Fall 1995 Linux CD-ROM.

I created the disk and booted the laptop from the diskette.  At the
"boot:" prompt I type:

    linux ramdisk=1440 root=/dev/fd0

as instructed by the manual.

It goes through its boot procedure, finds my IDE controller and hard
disk, finds the western digital ethernet card, and then says the

Welcome to Yggdrasil Plug-and-Play Linux, Fall 1995 edition!

470 blocks
function: not found

Then the machine hangs and will do nothing else.

Obviously there is something wrong with the netboot disk.  Is there
someplace I can FTP a properly operating netboot disk?  Or does anyone
know how to get around this problem?

Please respond by E-mail.
