I have a new Asus P2B mainboard with a PII 400 and 128meg of system
When I try to boot from the redhat 5.0 boot disk nothing happens.
The system goes through the normal power-on sequence (mem test,beep,
scan for PnP, scan SCSI bus, etc).
The floppy drive light goes on. And then nothing. Nothing is printed
on the screen, and there is no more system activity.
I'm pretty sure the floppy itself is ok, since I used it to install
linux on an old 486 and it worked just fine.
This is a SCSI only system. I've got the Adaptec 1542CF (not the plug
and play version). I have three ISA cards in this machine: The AHA 1542CF,
a Number Nine video card and a Plug and Play Sound Blaster card.
For whats its worth, I know not much, the system works fine under
Can anyone tell me what might be wrong or what things I should try to
get the system to boot? I believe its possible since I've seen posts
from people that have Linux running on this mb.
Thanks for any info.
