Description maxfield 1998-12-05 16:26:58 UTC
When using an ls120 drive as the boot drive, install for ftp
fails when looking for the second disk in the two disk set.

 with this setup
/dev/hda -- 4 gig drive
/dev/hdb -- ls120 drive
/dev/hdc -- cdrom drive
no floppy drive

  when the system prompts you to insert the second install
disk, it errors out looking for /dev/fd0 and hangs.

Comment 1 David Lawrence 1998-12-07 22:28:59 UTC
Currently loading of the second install disk is not supported for the
LS120 drives. You will need to use a standard floppy device or install
from a cdrom. Also NFS installs do not require a second disk so that
may be better if you are wanting to install over the network.
