Description jsfhome 1999-06-03 23:48:15 UTC
On installing after booting off the CDROM, I had found that
the AUTOBOOT.BAT INITRD.IMG is pointing to the wrong
directory. The directory it should be pointing to is as
follows:
X:\DOSUTILS\AUTOBOOT\INITRD.IMG.
(X being the cdrom drive letter).
Entering this at the root seems to run correctly.

Trying to start up manually from DOS, I invoked the AUTOBOOT
script from the \DOSTOOLS directory, and LOADLIN failed to
find the appropriate kernel and ramdisk image.  Looking
around, I found apparently the only kernel and ramdisk image
on the CD, but they were in different directories than the
batch file was referencing.  Manually running loadlin with
the different paths allowed me to boot and install normally.
