can't install linux- cd didn't come with driver for cd-rom

Post by Steven Beckerma » Mon, 26 Feb 1996 04:00:00



Hi I have a Future Domain TMC-850/M/MER/MEX SCSI Host Adapter for my
cd-rom.  I can't find the correct Boot Kernel for it.
I don't know what version of linux I have, but if it helps I bought
Linux Unleashed 2nd Edition.

Does anyone else have this problem? Does someone know what boot kernel
will work and where to get it?

Thank you,
Steve

Any linux or slackware ftp site should have the boot kernels you require.
Did you by chance check the hardware HOWTO and or scsi HOWTO to see if
that particular card is suppoted?  http://www.linux.org/, can't miss
the FAQ/HOWTO button.

Linux Slackware ftp sites:
ftp.cdrom.com
ftp.linux.org
ftp.cc.gatech.edu
sunsite.unc.edu

Thanks for the help, but I checked and they all had the same boot disks.
It says that one is supported, but I tried it and it didn't work.

Any other advice or help would be appreciated.

thanks

1. Red Hat cd-rom didn't install LILO, how to get to Linux?

I had a problem installing LILO from the Red Hat 3.0.3 cdrom. I was
installing to my second hard drive (1 gig EIDE). I followed the
instructions about entering hardware parameters in the Large-IDE.howto
but it still didn't work. It also didn't let me set the root password
but I can do that later.

My question is, how do I get to my Linux system? I made the boot
floppy and the two ramdisks from the cdrom but they automatically
start the install. From by brief experience with Slackware I remember
something about being able to make some floppies to boot Linux and be
able to get to your hard drive and work with it. Where do I get some
floppy images to let me get into my Linux system and try to install
LILO? I got the $7 cdrom distribution and I have two IDE hard drives
and an IDE cd-rom. No ethernet, no scsi. Please help me get to my
system!
