I am trying to install Linux (from Slakeware 3.0 base) onto a new system. I
have a full linux setup running perfectly from my hard drive, and it works
great on an Intel 486/33 machine.
When I try to boot the disk on the new computer, I get half way though the
kernel, then everything goes nuts and I get numbers in <> all over the screen.
Exact symptoms vary a little, but the end result is always the same.
I rebuilt the kernel, made a new boot floppy, and tried again, but it always
dies soon after the kernel starts.
I turned off L1, L2 cache, PCI settings, IDE controller, almost everything I
could think of, yet still I can't boot.
PLEASE, if you have any suggestions, I would like to hear them. I really need
to get this box working.
If you had a similar problem, and if you got around it, please let me know
what you did.
Please send email as well as posting.
Thanks a lot,
