Got up this morn, all ready and raring to go to put Linux
Slackware 1.2.0 (I beleive those are the right #'s) and I set
about the install. I have a 486dx with 4 megs of RAM and a
204 meg HD partitioned into 3 drives C,D,E. I want to install
only a basic Linux system right now so I am want to only use
my E partition which has approx 70 megs of space on it. Plenty
of room for just a bare bones system right now (or so I am told).
I threw in the bare boot disk and that loaded just fine, told
me the right information and all, the I put in color144 the root
disk. It gave me the "slackware login:" prompt and I entered in
root ... then it prompted for a password. I don't have the right
info so it did this 3/4 times and then gave a timeout message and
went back to the same initial prompt. Now I enter in root and I
get the root prompt (#) however when I try and run fdisk I get
the message "Can't allocate any more memory."
Can any one help out a frustrated beginner. I have read all the
information that I could but now I need some practical advice. I
want to run Linux!
