RE: [K12OSN] re: Redhat 7.2 bootup



That boot floppy is just for emergencies. Microsoft has the windows
emergency boot floppy, redhat has its emergency boot floppy. Take the
floppy out and try it.

The box said "Requires Windows 95 or better." So I installed LINUX.

Hi One and All, 

I'm a newbie to Linux. I have bought the K12LTSP.org CDs to install
Redhat 7.2 on to some of my machines. I'm having a bit of trouble and
was hoping someone out there in LinuxLand might help me.

My goal is to create a dinky Library Lab using 8-10 clients and one
server. But first I need to figure out how the heck to "start" Linux! I
feel pretty stupid asking this question, but after I actually wipe off
Windoze, make a partition for Linux, install the distro and create a
boot floppy....how in the blue blazes do I start up Linux? The install
Cds seemed to do what they are supposed to, the floppy seemed to write
OK. I took out the CD, put in the floppy and started up. The machine
runs, and up comes a note/command line(?) something to the effect "boot
failed". Do I even need the floppy? Helpppppppp:(

Your patience and help is really appreciated.

Thanks for all the great information on the list too!
