    When you first boot the install disk, I believe you are
    given a chance to choose some options at the boot
    prompt. You should be able to choose a scsi enabled
    kernel at that time.

    Hi! I need help. I have a pentium 166 with Adaptec Scsi card. My first scsi hard disk drive is on the id 1 and my scsi cdrom is on id 3. I have make a boot disk with the kernel adaptec.s for installing Slackware 11 because my computer wan't boot from the cdrom.

    When I boot with the floppy disk I have the prompt boot. Should I enter some parameters ? When I press Enter key, after some screen, he ask me to put the root disk. the only root disk I have is the install.1 and install.2 but I have tell a Kernel Panic error.

    I'm a new user of Linux.

    How can I tell to load the cdrom to start the install of Slackware ? It's a new installation

    Should I mount my cdrom ?

    Thank you !
