    Creating Slackware boot disk


    I am trying to install slackware 10.1 on an old ibm machine. When i try to run "c:\rawrite bare.i a:" to create a bare.i disk it says bare.i access denied. Why is it dening me access to create this disk? I am the admin on the computer.

    Your running that on WIndows or Linux? I hope not Linux! Just throw your CD 1 in and install Slack that way. Run pkgtoo to and select make bootdicks from menu.

    Have you checked the diskette's little jumper? It could be that..

    You can create a Slackware bootdisk, but that's used when your cdrom can't boot from cd..

    You would need the sata.i one.
