1. help me i am in hell...
Well, not exactly. I was up till 2:30 this morning patiently
downloading all 5 megs of the "mini" distribution of linux from
yggdrasil(sp?). When the last file was finally received I unpacked and
installed with no problems. The difficulty is when I try to actually
start the damn thing! I run the linux.bat file and the process begins.
It gets to the point where it says "calibrating delay loop - ok 33.22
BogoMips." Then under that it says "failed," then waits a couple of
seconds and continues. So far so-so. Then after a few more lines of
commments (not errors) comes the killer: "hd.c - ST-506 interface disk
with more than 16 heads detected, probably due to non-standard sector
translation. Giving up!" then about a screenfull of error messages that
all seem to stem from this one i.e. "kernal panic - unable to mount root",
"MSDOS bread failed" etc...
My system is as follows:
486DX2 - 66 clone with 8MB ram, AMI BIOS, SiS Motherboard
Western Digital Caviar 540 MD HardDrive
(requires Ontrack Disk Manager, a dynamic drive overlay to access
the entire 540 Megs. I believe this to be the source of the errors.)
Has anyone successfully installed this on such a hard drive? I
_really_ do not want to have to back up, and then reformat my drive to
528 megs without the drive manager and then reinstall everything!! The main
reason I got the mini linux is to avoid doing this. Any ideas? I'm a
total newbie to linux/unix, but am quite adept at other aspects of computing.
