I bought a copy of Sol 8 last year and from time to time make half hearted
effort to install the OS without much success. The latest failure is as
I get past the initial fdisk issues and get done with the Installation CD
and reboot. The process then asks for Software CD 1 of 2. I stick this in
the tray, insert and click OK. The system spits it out saying it can't read
I also tried booting from this CD and a funny thing happens - the kernel
boot from CD using a DCA floppy but then it cannot mount the CD because it
does not like the file system. I am able to mount the CD under Linux and
separately under MS NT - directory listing looks OK to me.
I checked the latest faqs and turned off all caching in the BIOS setup, etc.
The latest DCA diskettes freeze the system (old Pentium Pro, PCI/ISA
motherboard, matrox video, eide drive (8.4GB) and cdrom, floppy, nothing
*). I had 2.5, 2.6 run on it okay.
