Hi guys I have an IBM 750c laptop computer that has no cmos
memory and for that reason it cannot boot Linux. I tried the UMSDS root
disk in hopes it didn't need to know anything about the HD, but no joy.
It seems to be a boot disk problem.
I did read the stuff for slackware 2.01 and it did say the
Thinkpad does have a problem. And you should use scsi.gz as your boot
disk and hold the left-hand shift key but that didn't work on my Thinkpad
either. I'm at a loss.
Any help will be appreciated.
