I've had no trouble getting it to boot. Grub seems to
handle dual booting quite well.
Reinstalled with all the options and still have plenty of
room. There is still one module missing, block-major-30.
Anyone know where it can be found on the Web?
Have a classic SoundBlaster16 card, which is listed in
the hardware listings as supported. The RH install does
identify my video card and monitor correctly, and they
work at true color 1024x768. Modifed fstab as before
to let users mount CD and floppies -- the only likely
user is me, and I would prefer to fool with the CD as
a regular user, rather than root.
Installed both Gnome and KDE but boot to the command
line. Set KDE as default GUI, since the KDE utilities
seemed easier for me. Downloaded blackbox and another
GUI and may experiment with installing them. Then I
plan to fool with cdrom and alternatives.
Have copied the boot logs to floppy to bring to the part
of the machine that can print. Will see if the Win
printer driver will work under the CodeWeavers version
of Wine, which would let me print directly.
Will set up the dial-up internet again and see what the
RH site wants me to download as patches.....
