I have just purchased a Dell 400MHz Pentium II system and I can't get FBSD
2.6.2 to install.
1. Boot from FBSD 2.6.2 floppy
2. Select the full screen setup
3. Remove all unnecessary devices
BTW, I can't find a driver for a NEC CD-ROM or the Intel Ethernet cards
4. Select 'Q' to quit and save
When I Quit and save the setup, it spins the floppy for about 30 seconds,
accesses it a couple of times, clears the screen, and then locks up.
Thinking that maybe it was timing out on a bunch of devices, I let it sit
for about 30 minutes on the blank screen, but it never progressed any
I bet you removed the console. (device sc0). Don't worry about that
conflict with the mouse.
Is the true purpose of Unix its use, or its administration?
