LILO, RH4.1 & Par. Zip Drive
Posted on 1997-05-16
I've installed RedHat 4.1 on my Parallel Zip Drive of a CD. That appears to have gone fine. It puts LILO into the MBR, but when I reboot I get: L 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01... and on and on forever. I also tried to use the boot disk as a rescue set. At boot: rescue root=/dev/sda1. But that wouldn't recognize the Zip Drive. So basically I have no way of accesing my Zip Drive which has all the Linux stuff to edit things. Something's not setting up properly. I am just doing a root and internet stuff install. I don't want XWindows are anything like that. I want nothing but LILO on my hard drive. If at all possible, I would like to LILO on a floppy instead of the MBR.
BTW: Gateway P5-75 - Parallel Zip Drive
