I tried insatlling Linux on my PC this weekend and failed.
My PC has an Intel 486DX CPU with AMI bios, and a 640M ESDI HD
by Fujitsu with an ESDI controller made by UltraStor (no SCSI or CD Rom).
I tried many bootdisks including bare, Xt, Scsinet, and Modern,
and all of them complained that HD has more than 16 heads due to
nonstandard sector partition. I tried supplying HD configuration
with ramdisk at boot time to no avail. I was able to ignore
warning messages (complaining that partitions do not end at cylinder
boundary) from Linux fdisk and installed the "A" disk sets.
However, I was not able to boot with either Lilo or boot floppy
created during setup.
If you have any suggestions to what I can do to fix this problem,
