I just finished installing Linux for my first time.
This is on a MB using the OPTI chipset with Write-Back caching enabled,
and a 90MHz Pentium.
NCR53c810 SCSI, Logitech MouseMan, 8M RAM (16M soon), #9 GXE Pro (only
using VGA16 at the moment).
The only problem I had was with the mouseman. I needed:
mouseman "/dev/mouse" # A symlink to /dev/ttyS0
Note the **** ChordMiddle ****. I have seen others post about having a
problem with a 3 button mouse. Maybe this will help them.
Hint: only install from floppies if you have no DOS - installing from a
DOS partition is much easier... you can quickly scrub linux and
start again if you make a mistake.
Hint: use xev to see what events you mouse is generating.
(oh, and I'm still booting from floppy - no LILO yet)
