> Linux is up an running great.....we've got a good support site:
I have tried everything there...... no go on any of my 6 different
model 80's. You folks must be using other models or scsi machines
maybe. Or use a different magick wand. I have mostly esdi machines,
but I am trying to rectify that.
The Debian boot came the closest, and got as far as partitioning disks.
But Debian 1.2 or 1.3 does not seem to exist anywhere on the net that
I can find, and the mca boot disks won't install the 2.0.... I tried.
The 2.0 itself won't install, just in case the old mca code was compiled
All of the slackware stuff did not even begin to install on my machines.
It could barely get as far as looking for esdi drives. Such is the
bane and pain of Model 80's (damn good machines, but sadly strange).
So, where is the Debian 1.3 tree these days? I will be happy to try
it, if I can find the 1.3 distribution. Alas, it seems to have gone
vaporware on the net, for reasons that I don't quite understand.
If not, I am loosely working on a NetBSD port with one of the folks
who got it going on a model 70 one time. I suspect that it will
work well, in time on my boxes.
