View Full Version : FC2 install on SCSI system doesnt go

29th June 2004, 05:34 AM
Have a SCSI Dell system. Configured SCSI to boot CDROM.
Apparently starts, i.e. I get msgs from "isolinux," but then "isolinux" says "can't find CDROM"?
Redhat used to have files on CDROM to "autoboot" from DOS. I don't see them on FC2.
So can't start install from DOS either.
Am stuck. Any suggestions on installing FC2 on this?
....I already have FC1 on this system, don't know how I got it on here... :-)
I really want to do a NEW install, not an upgrade.

That worked great.
I also guess I could have loaded the driver "aic7xxx" at the start ....if i could find it....

If you have an issue with ISOLINUX, the SYSLINUX site (http://syslinux.zytor.com)
has this link:

http://syslinux.zytor.com/hardware.php for hardware compatibility.

It lists PCI cards that are not compatible no matter what.

If you have this problem with other installs and you get an isolinux error message
you can also try the syslinux mail list by going to this page:
