I have a c drive on a dos partition. I have VL58.ISO on the c: drive , top level directory. I also have a subdirectory c:\loadlin with loadlin.exe, initrd.img and sata kernel file. I downloaded the std gold iso from the vector site and I didn't see ide kernel, there were only sata + scsi kernel files in the iso.
I did loadlin sata root=/dev/ram rw initrd=initrd.img.
when I select the start installation on the popup menu on the screen, it cannot see the VL58.ISO on the c: drive. it gives the foll message:-
ERROR, ERRORL . I could not find the install media in the hardisk or the cdrom as well. please check that you have
-vector linux cd rom in a cd drive
-a hard disk partition with vector linux iso file
- a hard disk partition with /vector/linux directory
can someone let me know why vector cannot find the iso although it is on the c: drive.
I am using an amd k2-500 with 6 Gigs hard disk and 388mb ram. I have an IDE drive.
Please advise what was wrong ? I have followed the instructions as per vector linux 5.8 documentation downloaded from the web site.
I would also like to point out, that by curiosity , I did download, DSL and Puppy and they installed fine. I also installed zenwalk, and it installed fine. but I didn't like zenwalk, there are not enough tools.
I don't know linux that much being more experienced with windows.
