New Install troubles on a Toshiba T4900CT
Ok, this is a very old laptop and I wanted to put something on that would not take so much resources up. So I tried to do a install with mandrake 9.0. I made the boot disk with the following and got the below errors...
the cdrom is a external connecting to SCSI, and when I try to boot using the linux floppy is cant access the cdrom but I can load a driver, but the issue is it ask for a parameters to give to the kernal...
cdrom.img: to install from a local IDE or SCSI CD-ROM drive. This has to be used in cases where you cannot boot your computer directly from the CD-ROM, by changing BIOS settings.
WTF? Where do I find these?
Not enough RAM error.
network.img: to install from a NFS, FTP, HTTP repository, your local LAN or via a PPPoE (DSL lines) network connection. The network configuration of the machine to be installed may be manual or automatic.
pcmcia.img: if the installation media is reached through a PCMCIA card (network, CD-ROM, etc.).
So my question is the laptop wont boot fromt he cdrom, well at least I can't find a manul on the net that will show me how to get into the bios to find out if it iwll boot. But anyways how can I do a install of linux?
I even put the cdrom in and clicked "Install Linux" and it says the pc will reboot and start install, but it wont reboot when I click "OK".
