Description Milan Kerslager 1999-04-27 21:00:14 UTC
Current \dosutils\autoboot.bat looks like this:

loadlin autoboot\vmlinuz
initrd=..\misc\src\trees\initrd.img

This sould be initrd=autoboot\initrd.img

Anyway file ..\misc\src\trees\initrd.img does not exist.
In directory ..\misc\src\trees you now have only files
initrd-local.img and initrd-network.img.

*** Bug 3257 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

On installing after booting off the CDROM, I had found that
the AUTOBOOT.BAT INITRD.IMG is pointing to the wrong
directory. The directory it should be pointing to is as
follows:
X:\DOSUTILS\AUTOBOOT\INITRD.IMG.
(X being the cdrom drive letter).
Entering this at the root seems to run correctly.

*** Bug 3584 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

Trying to start up manually from DOS, I invoked the AUTOBOOT
script from the \DOSTOOLS directory, and LOADLIN failed to
find the appropriate kernel and ramdisk image.  Looking
around, I found apparently the only kernel and ramdisk image
on the CD, but they were in different directories than the
batch file was referencing.  Manually running loadlin with
the different paths allowed me to boot and install normally.
