Hi there from Canberra!
I am getting into difficulty with an attempted RH 6.2/7.1 linux install. Can
My machine is a 350 MHz K6 ... and I have 128 Meg of RAM. Video is a S3 card
... so maybe I should concentrate on XFree86 version 3.3.6. First hard drive
is an 1.2 Gig IDE model ... which runs drdos 7.03.
The target for the install is a SCSI disk ... a 2 gig IBM model which has formatted
up well and (with the help of an old Slackware 3.5 distribution) I have installed
a linux native partition of 1.9 gig ... and approximately 100 Meg of linux swap.
I cannot get the installer to see the hard drive! Under dr-dos the drive can
also be seen and formatted.
I tried loading 'boot.img' ... and then choosing Expert mode. Then when asked
I tried using the drivers.img disk and the following settings which are correct
for my host adapter.
ie Adaptec 1505 card, I/O address 0x140, IRQ=10, host address =7 and enable
Still the installer reports only the IDE hard drive. Has anyone solved this
I can install Slackware using the above hardware ... but I am restricted to
older versions ... and I would like some of the features of RedHat or Mandrake.
Has anyone got any ideas please??
