Description icecep 1999-04-15 21:40:35 UTC

could you please re-enable the possibility to install to
ls120 disk4s ? (i compiled a kernel with ide-floppy support
and commented 1 line in your installer code and succeeded)

an additional change has to be made with the lilo-installer

you need the parameters
disk /dev/hdc (if the ls120 is secondary master)
   bios 0x00

in lilo.conf

and you have to install the stuff to /dev/hdc (not hdc1) ..

2) please let someone chose to dis/enable ALL packages (at
least in expert mode) to reduce the minimal install size of

see ya.
