I can get LinuxPPC to boot into the X-based installer if I boot all the
way into MacOS, then double click on the Boot Linux (control panel?)
that the installer put on the desktop. This brings up the same screen as
BootX. I'm assuming that's what it is. I'm booting off the R5 CD-ROM.
BUT, if the normal system boot process stops at BootX, and then I choose
Linux (with the same parameters as before). The screen loses sync and I
can't hear anything happening. Any ideas?
* PowerMac 7200/75. 48 MB RAM
* 2 SCSI hard drives. 250 MB for MacOS, 1 GB for linux. About 90 MB for
swap, the rest for root
* 2X Apple CD-ROM. The "term power" jumper is in. I pulled the
termination resistors from the 250 MB drive, which is in the middle. The
drives have both been reformatted with a Apple HD Setup from OS 8.5.
* Nothing on the external SCSI db25 connector.
