Limbo1 installs fine, 7.3 is fine "other vendors" are fine.
Limbo1 was using the same version of syslinux (isolinux) and we haven't done
anything weird since then. I also seem to remember that the tp600s we have were
working fine when I was using them to test the pcmcia code with pre-null code.
Are you sure it worked with limbo1 / know if it works with other isolinux using
Yes on all counts. And tried both docked/undocked and with two different drives.
I talked to HPA (Isolinux maintainer) about it - he seemed to have some ideas. I
need to test isolinux 1.76pre1 and find out.
I'll try a floppy based install later to check the rest is ok
Floppy install works.
Dropping severity since floppy based installs do work.
Does 2.00 in phoebe work?
2.00 in Phoebe dies with
isolinux: Disk error 01, AX=4229,8B
Same CD is ok on other systems
I'm pretty sure this is a BIOS bug.
Agreed - I've been discussing this with H Peter Anvin
