Linux installation problems

Post by Gareth R Woolridg » Thu, 16 Oct 1997 04:00:00

When I try to install Linux from a Slackware distribution i run into

I make the boot and root disks for install correctly and reboot the

Shorty after switching to the root disk I am asked to press enter (I
dont enter any other parameters) and after about thirty seconds of
loading system it reports keyboard error and hangs

The machine is k6-200 with a TX chipset!!

The slackware cd I use is quite old, but I've never had any trouble on
my 486 systems.  Is this a problem with the TX chiset or the AMD k6

Do the newer distributiions or Caldera Openlinux etc work with the newer
chipsets yet???

Hope  you can help

1. Linux Installation Problems...........

I have Win 98 loaded on my computer ! The primary paritition is 3.53 GB

Then there is one extended partition with three logical paritions of 1.99 GB
each !
(I have just started to install linux which seems like a very long
process...). As I go into Disk Druid it tells me that I may need another
partition !

Any help will be appriciated as I am not a big (not at all actually) expert
on linux !
