Will not mount CDU-535 during initial boot. Boot.img has changed between 5.1 and 5.2 in this area. Checked by running boot floppy from 5.1 a couple of times and retried the 5.2 version. 5.2 still did not mount the drive. I wasn't too sure of the component. If more information is needed please call 843 571 0985.

Is this happening when trying to boot the first install diskette or is it during a normal boot after installation?

My system consists of a Radio shack 486 DX-250, 20 meg of ram, Western Digital HDs 1 gig and 405 meg. The 1 gig is the boot drive and used WD Drive Manager to install both drives. These operate OK with 5.1. The sound blaster card operated OK as did playing the music CDs. I also have a ZIP 100 external drive which was not detected with 5.1 initial boot disk but was detected with 5.2. This maybe cosmitic but the right habd selection indicator on the key board, cdrom selection, and scsi selection do not follow the left hand selection and does not change if the space bar is pressed. It seems to work OK if defaults are selected but the situation is questionable if it is not. I will mention it here and sublit an additional bug report to the Doc department but choosing to insall from a hard drive gives recommendations for copying the CD=ROM files from a CD to a dos partition then the screen where they are selected to install from suggests with a forward facing slash that it is a LINUX type drive. By the way neither worked and I tried it as a msdos drive and then changing it to a linus type. I didn't really expect the laer to work. All of the directories mentioned it the online screen were present as were thoes mentioned in the documentation.

This is a know problem with the hard drive install option. We are working on getting errata boot disks available for download as soon as possible.
