Description john.l.villalovos 1999-09-21 18:49:51 UTC
Unable to do the LILO portion of the install when just using
the bootnet.img boot disk.  Did not use the supp option for
using the supp and modules disks.

Discovered that the loop.o module on the bootnet.img disk
was compiled for kernel version: 2.2.5-14BOOT

While the kernel on the bootnet.img disk is version:

insmod refuses to load the loopback device driver which
appears to be causing the lilo and create boot disk portion
of the install to fail.
