First off i am very new to linux. Ok, i am tring to install linux (Red Hat
6.1) onto a IBM ThinkPad 755c. It does not have a CDRom, so i want to
install the software using a datastor commuter attached through the parallel
port. I down loaded the paride-boot.img and paride-dd.img and created the
boot disk and the driver disk (that is what the paride-dd.img is isn't it?)
i then use the boot disk to boot up the laptop.
when i get the prompt (boot:) i ether hit enter for the graphical or i have
tried typing text. ether way i am propmted to insert the driver disk, which
i do. at this point i get the following error.
' error failed to mount floppy disk'
i click ok and it allows me to continue with the setup till i reach the
cdrom install. I am asked to chose between scsi and other cdrom. I chose
other and am given a list, however parallel port cdrom is not in the list.
that is as far as i can get.
Thank You for your time
