Going to net-2 from SLS 1.01

Going to net-2 from SLS 1.01

Hi Netters:

Please help me out or direct me to the right readme places.. rtfm's are
welcome too. I am trying to move from the networking as installed with SLS
1.01 to net-2, because I've done a kernel and gcc update (to resp. 0.99pl10
and 2.4.3).

Problem is, I can't get the networking up. The first boot with the new kernel
came up with warnings, which are caused by /etc/config (something like, old
style requests). So I got the new binaries and stuff for net-2, but a lot of
files are now missing --- the .tar.z file which unpacks to /etc contains a lot
of symbolic links to /conf; which I (yet) don't have.

A readme file for a complete idiot, taking me through the installation process
step by step, would be *very* welcome. I know that this subject has been on
this newsgroup before; e.g., hostname returning (none); which I also have
since my 'old' configuration defines no host for the new net package.

Please help!

1. Help: DPT SCSI controller with SLS 1.01

: I have a Dell 466/ME with a IDE disk (drive C) and a CDC Wren 5 SCSI disk.
: The SCSI controller is a DPT SCSI PM 2012B/90 controller.
: I use the SCSI disk under MS DOS 6.0 (as Drive D and E) without problem,
: but when I tried to install SCSL 1.01 on the 3rd partition of the SCSI
: disk, the kernel doesn't detect the SCSI controller, neither the SCSI disk.
: "fdisk /dev/sda3" also give me "cannot not open /dev/sda3" error.

: My questions are:
: 1.Does SLS support this SCSI controller?
: 2.If 1 is yes, how to make the kernel detect the SCSI copntroller?

Put it in WD compat mode, not in EATA mode to use linux.
