end Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount rootfs on unknown-block(8,1)
random: nonblocking pool is initialised

And it sits there flashing lights...

I'll try installing again while I wait for a reply, in case I did something silly last time...

Or maybe I won't: it says
Could not find kernel image: /isolinux/kernel/sata32

using smbpasswd, guestpc without a password does not work!  bruce with a password works but I can only access my home account!  Until I removed the Force User in Samba.config.
Thanks, Nightflier.

Oh! And changing a parameter in the repeater allowed my to access internet.

Apparently, the install never finishes. After the file copy reaches 100% it is supposed to install the boot loader so you can restart and boot from the hard drive.

The VL installer makes it easy to boot from the install medium, then continue from the internal disk. Assuming you only have one hard drive in the computer, and you chose the "automatic" install: When the initial splash screen appears, enter command "linux root=/dev/sda1 ro"

If that starts the system, post back with your results and we can help you with further trouble shooting.

Never tried that kind of setup.. have you tried command "smbpasswd -a <username>" and enter a blank password?

I'm trying to find something useful to do with a couple of very old laptops and I've had it suggested that Vector Linux is a good way to go.
The GUI installer does something very petunia so I've used the original and it seems to work, all the way to 100% and then it stops...

After a reboot, the machine just sits there with a blank screen...

Was unable to get my USB dongle to work, I dug out an old WAP attached via ethernet cable and remoted to my qwest WAP.  Linux has been assigned an ip address and I can ping my windows machine and vice-versa but no internet.

Since Samba no longer allows
security share
, I have been unable to connect to my linux pc. I have set smb.conf to map guests to guestpc and
useradd guestpc
When I try to connect using guestpc (which windows changes to BRUCE-PC/guestpc).  I've tried leaving the password blank as well as my passwords on Linux.
Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password
Any suggestions?

It's easy to lose track of what's popular.

Joe here, as "jstar". You?
