Installing Mandrake from Windows 2000 drive with GRUB floppy
I've downloaded the Mandrake 10.1 CD's and extracted them (WinISO) to a folder called Mandrake under the root folder on my Windows 2000 partition. I created the GRUB boot floppy (rawritewin.exe) using the hd_grub.img and modified it to point to the location on my hard drive where the "vmlinuz" and "all.rdz" files are. In fact this is what my GRUB floppy has in it's menu.lst file:
title Mandrake Install
kernel /mandrake/isolinux/alt0/vmlinuz ramdisk_size=128000 root=/dev/ram3 acpi=ht vga=788 automatic=method:disk,partition=hda1,directory=/mandrake
I get the classic error 17, which states that it doesn't recognize the filesystem. Windows 2000 is formatted as NTFS and I wonder if this is the problem.
Is it possible to dump the install files to a Windows 2000 partition and make a GRUB boot disk?
I changed the root (hd0,0) to rootnoverify (hd0,0) and now receive error 15, which states that it can't find the file. Am I making progress?
