Slackware 3.4, Comapq Deskpro 6200 & bootdisks

i wonder if any one has had the same problem as me.  My Comapq will
run and install Red hat no problems at all, however when I attempt to
install Slackware, On booting the machine gets so far and then (Just
after the PCI probe I think)  it reboots its self.

I was thinking of building a new slackware kerenel under Red hat, but
was unsure about what to include or remove.

I've also tried several boot disks, but without any success.  Any one
out there been here before ?

PS I got so desperate last night I booted the machine with dos/
windows to ensure that no hardware conflicts existed !!!




1. Slackware 3.3, Slackware 3.4, SC875, n_53c8xx.s bootdisk

Not finding a bootdisk in the Slackware 3.3 or 3.4 distribution that
would boot from my ASUS SC875 card, I took to building the parts
necessary to create one with the "makedisk" utility.
