What it means the "0x10" error when you are trying to install Linux Slackware 7 with the boot disks

Thanks

This is a excerpt from the LILO users guide. The URL is below.

0X10 means that you have a CRC error. A media error has been detected. Try booting several times, running the map installer a second time (to put the map file at some other location or to write good data over the bad spot), mapping out the bad sectors. Or replace the media.

Good Luck!!

Assuming you are talking about the 01 10 errors when booting after install... It typically means your Linux boot partition is beyond cylinder 1023 on the disk drive and is most common when setting up a dual boot installation (say windows & Linux). The installation Howto (http://howto.tucows.com/LDP/HOWTO/Installation-HOWTO.html) covers these topics, and more.
