Hi.
I have a problem when I try to install linux.
Run fdisk   OK
Run setup   OK

When the program need the*floppy of A series , an I put it , this
is the result:

floppy0: unexpected interrupt
sensei

1 0
sensei
0 c1
1 0
sensei

DEV 021C  , sector 0
MSDOS BREAD FAILED
mount: wrong fs type ,/dev/fd0h1440 already mounted, /var/adm/mount busy,or
                other error.

I read a floppy under DOS system and I DON'T have any problem.

Hard Disk scsis 155Mb

Thanks in advance , and sorry for my english.

1. LILO help <><><><><><>

I just installed RH6 on a box that only had a 50MB DOS partition to
begin with.
During the RH install, I used Disk Druid to set up additional
partitions as follows:
/       ~1 GB
swap    ~40 MB
/usr    ~500 MB
/boot   ~10 MB

When prompted, I told it to install LILO into the "/boot" partition.

Upon restarting the system after the install, it booted into DOS again
from my origional active DOS partition.

I tried booting from the emergency rescue disk that I was prompted to
create during the install, but it gives me an error "0x10" and stops.

I can boot using the RH "boot.img" boot disk, hitting F4, and then
inserting the "rescue.img" disk made from dosutils on the RH CD, but I
have no idea what to do from there.

I want to make the thing boot with LILO and ask whether to start DOS or
boot Linux (as default). I realize now that I probably shoud've just
told it to install LILO into the MBR.

Please tell me there is an easy/painless way to get LILO to do this
without re-installing totally.

Many thanks!
