I managed to install DSL in an Old IBM thinkpad 760L with no networkcard or cdrom, i used paralell link cable to copy the cd from other PC, now i have install DSL to HD but i wish to use LOADLIN to load DSL just after DOS get to boot that is because i wish to get my sound card drivers loaded before since its card is an Mwave; the problem is when X is about to get started i just got a black screen, i went to the console (CTRL-ALT F1) this error was there:
XIO: fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server ":0.0" after 0 request (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.
the strange thing is that whenever i use the floppy disk to boot the cd copy inside the HD it starts correctly and the desktop displays just fine.
the way that i use LOADLIN is the following:
loadlin linux24 root=/dev/hda5 ro vga=785
i have search for the x config file but i wasn't able to find it, i have run xsetup.sh script i tried to change vesa to framebuffer but i got the same result.
Thanks in advance
