Description Chris Siebenmann 1999-04-21 17:59:36 UTC
One of our test machines, a relatively standard IDE-based
machine with 32M of memory and a Cyrix 6x86-PR166+ at
133 Mhz, doesn't boot the latest Starbuck or Rawhide boot
images (either boot.img or bootnet.img). Syslinux reports
'boot failed' after printing its startup banner. (The
same floppy will boot happily on another machine.)

 The same machine is happy with the RedHat 5.2 boot disk
images (and RedHat 5.2, which it has installed).

 If you need more details about the hardware or have
tests you'd like to see performed on the machine, let
me know.

Comment 1 David Lawrence 1999-05-04 19:35:59 UTC
I attempted to verify this problem with a test lab system consisiting
of a Cyrix P166+ and 32 megs of ram using the latest 6.0 bootnet.img.
I was unable to get the install to fail as reported.
