Description szi 1999-06-16 17:54:32 UTC
I tried to install RH 6.0 via NFS on a system with LS120.
The kernel, that is in the bootnet.img file, does not
support ide-floppy. I solved that problem by creating a new
kernel. But with the new kernel I can access the LS120
during installation (on the second virtual console), but the
install program does not find it as /dev/hda.  It searches
for SCSI disk, does not find any and says, that my system
has no harddisk.  I have created the devices for hda1-9 by
hand, but that does not solve the problem.  How can I
install RH 6.0 on a LS120???

Further information:
I did a network installation via a PXE bios.  I took the
initrd image and the kernel from the network boot disk and
installed them on a tftp server.  The kernel was booted via
bpbatch.  RH 6.0 does not use a second floppy.  That is very
important, because the computer has no floppy and all
modules have to be in the initrd image or have to be loaded
from the NFS server.
