Come on all you Debian freaks ...
after a couple of disappointments installing (?) Linux on my SCSI
disk I have been recommended Debian 'potato'. I got the cdrom from
the Advanced Linux Handbook and got an install started. Trouble is
that the installer then asks for a driver disk ... which is not on
I went to the Debian site ... and turned up Chapter 5 ... Methods for
Installing Debian. It seems I can download a set of drivers and
install them onto a floppy. Is this what my install is calling for??
My hardware issue is a SCSI hard disk with an adaptec 1505AE host
adapter. I have managed to get this combination working under drdos
... but linux is still proving a challenge.
I'm tempted to download a file from the 'Driver floppies archive' ...
identified as drivers.tgz. Is this the file I need to mount on my
floppy?? Please assist if you can...
