I'm trying to get Linux on my system and I'm hitting a major roadblock
when the root disk (color144) is being loaded into the RAMDISK. It loads
1200 blocks and then comes back with a RAMDISK I/O error.
I've got 16MB of RAM on my machine so I can't beleive it's running out of
memory. However, since I have Linux on 1.44M disks I have to use my B:
drive to install the software. I have a CMOS option that swaps the hardware
A: drive with hardware B: drive for booting purposes. I'm guessing that
Linux does not recognize this CMOS trick and thinks it's dealing with a
1.2M drive (which would explain why it crashes at block 1200).
Has anyone had this problem and found a work-around for it? I want to keep
my Linux installation on 1.44M media.
