Description Gene Czarcinski 2000-08-26 10:09:26 EDT
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.
Comment 1 Gene Czarcinski 2000-08-26 10:17:23 EDT
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?
