Description d.n.muir 1999-07-08 23:05:15 UTC
I've finally gotten brave enough to try RedHat 6.0 - but
the CD won't autoboot for me.

    What I had to do was create a bootable floppy with CD
driver, define the CD as drive Z (to get it out of the way
in case I had other hard drives), copy
\dosutils\autoboot.bat as rh6set.bat on the floppy and call
this from the floppy's autoexec.bat.  I then had to edit the
loadlin line of rh6set.bat to:

z:
cd dosutils
loadlin autoboot\vmlinuz initrd=autoboot\initrd.img

   initrd.img was not in the place specified in the original
autoboot.bat. There were initrdN.img files (N being numbers)
there.

Hopefully helpfully...

Dexter
