User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.3-12smp i686)

Description of problem:
In order to get the installer to stop and ask if additional device drivers
are necessary, I had to add "linux isa" to the "loadlin"
command in dosutils\autoboot.bat.  This necessitated copying it and
editing it.  It would be simpler if you added "%1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9"
at the end of the command line.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put a SIIG 540 SCSI controller in your computer
2. Boot to DOS
3. Run autoboot from the dosutils directory on the CD

I'm just curious, why do you need to use loadlin instead of just booting off the
cd itself?
Comment 2 Preston Brown 2002-01-07 11:13:18 EST
added to the autoboot.bat file for next release.
