I recently installed OpenBSD 2.5 on my Dell Dimension XPSP120c. When I
tried to install 2.6 (from the Official OpenBSD CD-ROM, fresh install - no
data/customization to save), it would boot from the CD or from floppy, but
would not see the CD when it got to asking where to install from.
The PC is a Pentium 120, 64MB RAM. The main IDE HD & CD-ROM are on the
built-in IDE controller. I recently added a Promise IDE controller for a
second LPT, and had to put the floppy drive on that controller as well (for
the floppy to work in NT & Linux). I am trying to install OpenBSD onto a
SCSI HD attaced to a Diamond Fireport 40 SCSI controller, which also has a
2nd SCSI HD connected to it (the IDE has NT on it, for work purposes).
OpenBSD 2.5 installs okay, as do NT, and RedHat, Caldera, SuSE, and
I am planning to remove the Promise controller and see how it works then.
Does anyone have any other suggestions or pointers?
