    IBM 760ED


    Hello,

    I am trying to install Slackware 10.1 on an IBM TP 760ED. There is one problem, I cannot boot from CD-Rom. I have got to the point where I can use loadlin.exe to boot from the cd. When I type "loadlin bzimage root=/dev/hdb initrd=initrd.tgz ro" I get an error about cannot mount fs or something like that. If you can help that would be great! Also, I have installed this before using the same method so I know it can be done.

    Hmm are you sure the download was not currupted and that the cd burned cleanly?
