Please bear with me as this is my first attempt at any kind of UNIX
I have worked with NT and with Netware, but UNIX is altogether different
I am trying to install SCO 5.0.4 from an EIDE/ATAPI CDROM drive.
The hardware is:
CPU: AMD 586 133mhz
RAM: 12 MEG
HARD DRIVES: WESTERN DIGITAL CAVIAR 540 MEG [2 of them]
both on Primary IDE controller, one as
master, on as slave
CDROM: MITSUMI 8x [uses toshiba/sanyo driver in DOS or
on Secondary IDE controller as master
[controller is at IRQ 11, I/O addr
VIDEO: Paradise SVGA w/512k [8-bit card]
NIC: Linksys 10 mbps Ethernet [NE2000 compatible]
[set for IRQ 5, I/O addr 0300h]
I have previously installed on [and removed each from] this machine
WinNT 3.51 Server, Win NT 4.0 Server, and Netware 3.11 and 4.0, so I
hardware works. I tried to install Yggdrasil Plus-and-Play Linux, but I
could not get the X-Window
GIU to run properly.
I have of course rtfm, but when I try to link the ATAPI from the BTLD
disk, I get an error that says that
it cannot locate the specified module.
If anyone has done this successfully, I would appreciate knowing what
sting you have passed at the BOOT: prompt
to link the ATAPI BTLD, and which version of the BTLD or supplement disk
from SCO were you using.
I have looked at the SCO www site and found some info about downloading
disk images, but it is unclear how to
create a Unix disk image from a Dos or Win95 machine. Again - any input
would be greatly appreciated....
Thanks in advance for helping me with my 'baby steps' in the Unix
Please copy your reply via email as I do not get to the newsgroups too
often [I hope that will change].
