Hi, I recently bought a P-90 from dell...Dimension xps p90. In it is a
ide hard drive that is connected to the PCI bus on the motherboard. I'm
in the process of tring to install linux and when I hit enter after
the initial boot prompt eventually I get this message.
hd.c: ST-506 interface disk with more than 16 heads detected, probably
due to non-standard sector tranlation. Giving up.
disk 0; cly=5221, sect=63, head=31
I used fips to partition my harddrive into 100 meg dos and 415 waiting
to become linux. Currently I'm using the modern boot but I've tried the
bare boot also with no luck :(
Is there a better boot somewhere I should be using or what is my
