I have 486 PC with an adaptec SCSI-2 hard disk, which I would like to
partition into two parts for DOS and linux, respectively.
I used DOS fdisk to first partition the hard disk into one DOS primary
partition (for DOS) and second partition as extended partition
(intended for linux).
But when I boot linux I get messages about scsi0 not being found and
as proceed to login into linux as root and to format linux partition
it gives me the message about "can not open /dev/sda2", etc.
Can someone tell me what is a correct way of doing SCSI disk
partitioning for linux?
Or is there a linux.install.faq list that I can get help from?
