Hello world (and many thanks Malware for finding my typo!)
So I'm trying to intall RH6.2 on a CDless laptop.
I think I've finally gotten plip up on the nfs serving machine
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
my.target.machine * 255.255.255.255 UH 0 0 0 plip0
my.host.machine * 255.255.255.255 UH 0 0 0 eth0
[more routing table stuff deleted]
I cannot ping the target machine, the PLIP-install.HOWTO says
I ought to be able to...
I have the target on the installation step after having seleced nfs
install, the PLIP device.
Now, perhaps here is where some of the trouble is.
If I do not select "specify module parameters" when
selecting the PLIP interface it seems to think about
it, then time out and comes back with
/tmp/plip.o: init_modult: Device or resource busy
So I tried specifying module parameters either
IO address 0x3bc irq 5
IO address 0x378 irq 7
and I think there's the same error message (but the shadow from the
"Installation Method" menu overwrites it before it can be read).
I don't know if this is a server or target problem...
Many thanks for any help.
