Linux on 8088

summary: minix is a unix flavor that will run on less than a 386

        I recently installed minix-386 to study the kernel; however,
I found that I was unable to mount the minix partition under
linux to ease my installation.  Here are the details:

austindt:/# mount -t minix /dev/hdb3 /mnt

mount: /dev/hdb3 not a mount point

Any clues?

I believe it's:

mount /dev/hdb3 /mnt -t minix

...actually. Certainly, I use that syntax to mount partitions.

Are you sure /dev/hdb3 does exist and is a block special device?

1. slow connection between terminal(8088) and linux box via serial

I connected a 8088 running kermit to a linux box via serial port. I'm
using getty-ps. the connection is working but is slow(10 to 12 char
burst about every 20 secs.) kermit is set with 9600 8n1 vt100 and the
getty is set for 9600.

does anyone know why this is happening?
