I did a harddisk fresh install of rc2 into a partition which started at cyl
1177. Although lilo could not run properly since linar is specified,
anaconda did not produce any error messages.
Mmm ... maybe it tried. I now remember that I got some "garbage" (partial
clutter on the screen) on the screen:
"ning: device 0x030a"
"for linear mode (try"
I now believe that this was from lilo. However, there was nother from anaconda.
Was this a pre-existing partition you used for the install?
