A thousand thanksyous JIm but I still got trouble. Now when I rn scsi.fdisk
I get :        
          scsidisk I/O error
          dev 0800, block 0
          scsidisk I/O error
          dev 0800, block 0
          scsidisk I/O error
          dev 0800 block 0

When LInux boots it complains of non-standard sector size (I think)... and
when I look at the boot sector with Nortons things don't look too good; for
instance in the field for sys ID is a bunch of high bit characters and such.
I am confused about why I get no complaint from DOS though if the boot sector
or partition table is messed up.

A while back someone mentioned that there was a reference available for
hard drive geometries on the net... could that person please repeat the
name of that file so I could call Archie with it? I may have messed stuff
up when I pfdisked my new partitions.

Not having Linux running is VERY DEPRESSING...!

1. Yet another Solaris PPP problem, as yet unanswered

Hello folks,

I have configured aspppd and successully dial in to my ISP when I ping
the farside of the link, but after authenication I get the a bunch of
strangeness, basically complaining in the ppp dialog about an
"unrecognized protocol".  This problem began when I installed 2.6 (it
did not occure in 2.5.1) and did not resolve itself when I installed 2.7
(oh well, you can always hope right?) Could one of the network guru's
out there shed some light on this problem please!

I've included the /etc/log/asppp.log file:

login:got it
sendthem (myusername^M)
expect: (word:)
myusername^M^JPassword:got it
sendthem (mypassword^M)
expect: (....)
 ^M^JPPP session from (207.21.104.141) to 207.21.142.109
beginning....got it
