A couple of days ago, I installed the Slackware D-series that I had
downloaded and stored on a *DOS* partition on my Fujitsu 128MB m.o. scsi
At one point I was told that I was required to install the Linux kernel
if I wanted to use the C compiler, so I did.
When there was no more software to install, I was asked (and I think
advised) to make a new boot disk, which I did.
However, when I tried to 'reboot' using my new boot disk, I got a
"kernel panic" and a dead machine, so I punched the RESET button, but the
same thing happened: kernel panic.
So, I tried booting with my old boot disk, which worked!
Question: How come my old boot disk works but my supposedly new boot
Followup: Is this something I should be concerned about or can I just
recycle that "new" boot disk?
