Howdy all-

I hope someone can give me a hand. I'm trying to set up Slackware 7.0.
I have a Backpack CD-ROM Model 165550 and have not been able to get linux
to recognize it in order to do the setup. I'm using the pportide.i image
for a boot disk, and color.gz for root. I've partitioned the drive, but
haven't been able to get any further than that.

I've read about folks using 'modprobe garblewarblefashes' to get things to
happen, but since nothing has been installed yet I can't do that, can I?
Or can I?

Obviously, I need help. What am I doing wrong?

"My object in living is to unite my avocation with my vocation
 As my two eyes make one in sight.
 Only where love and need are one, and the work is play for mortal stakes,
 Is the deed ever really done for Heaven and future's sakes."
