    Scsi cdrom / need bootdisk


    Hello

    I have a laptop running NT and I want to wipe it out and put some kind of small linux on it (i.e. minimalistic slackware). The problem is that the scsi cdrom is not bootable so I need a floppy disk to be able to install from the cd drive. I tried to copy the bootdisk and rootdisk *.img's (from vector linux iso) to floppies , but it doesn't recognize scsi. Thank you for any help!

    You may need to get the correct driver for the CDROM on a floppy and then do modprobe after the boot and root disks. Worked for me on a non-booting drive on a 486.

    It doesn't say that it works with SCSI, but I'll give it a try... (SBM)
