I am looking for a good bulletin board system that runs under
System V.3.  I am interested in both public domain and commercial
software.  If anyone knows of any drop a line.

Thanks,


 
 
 

1. lilo error L BB BB BB BB BB

Hello,
I am trying to install debian potato on an elderly system, where
hda-disk is 120MByte and therefore shall host only the /boot - section,
which is mounted to a
10MByte-Partition (/hda1). The rest resides on hde, which a 30GB-HD on
an
promise-controller.

My Problem: After installing debian with some boot parameters for the
controller
and the hde-disk it boots well from the rescue-floppy, but not from hard
disk.
Lilo hangs, showing on the screen:
L BB BB BB BB
and adding a new "BB" every second.

I checked the geometry of hda against BIOS, fdisk, bootmessage and lilo,
they
are identical. I used another location on /hda (perhaps some blocks are
bad?),
but it didn't help.

Could anyone help? What does the Lilo-Message mean? How can I fix this
problem?

Thanks,
Uwe
