I'm trying to install LinuxPPC 1999 (from the CD) onto my PowerMac 7500
(166 Mhz/96MB RAM). I have an IBM UltraStar 4.2GB SCSI HD that has OS
8.6, and a Quantum Fireball 1.0GB SCSI HD onto which I'm trying to
install Linux. I can reformat and repartition the Fireball drive using
Apple HD SCSI Setup OR with Pdisk (on the Mac OS side), but when I boot
to the LinuxPPC CD and run the installer, the installer CAN'T SEE the
Fireball drive. I have tried it several times, no luck. I see the
message "MESH 0: aborted" during the install program. The SCSI chain
is: the Fireball is SCSI 0.0, termination off; CD-ROM SCSI 0.3; and the
UltraStar 4.2GB (last device on the chain) is SCSI 0.6, termination on.
Please help! Thanks.
