I have been trying to get MOLK installed on a PegII, and I am just not having any luck. When launched with 10.1 DVD (the only full install I have available) in the DVD drive, the tux logo scatter loads (the last few bits come up very slowly), the dvd light flickers constantly, and the console as a continous stream of lines that read:
read: scsi_cmd failed
The DVD drive works under Debian, which is how Debian got installed on this machine as well. It is on the secondary, slave channel (hdd).
The hd is primary master, and the third partion (hda3) is the intended partion to install on should I ever get that far. The important bits in start-misc are:
blkdev:/dev/hda3 -rw -force
I've seen others have used a DVD install. How can I check that it is not the disk is bad? Linux just claims unknown fs for any of the disks I have and I doubt they are all bad.
Any ideas? Any additional info someone might need to help me debug this installation?
Thanks in advance for any assistance,
