Having tried Vector(3.0, 3.2) I am keen to HD install wonderful DSL on my old Digital VP Hinote notebook. As it doesn't have a CD-Rom, I copied files onto C:\ in the first (DOS) partition and booted from the boot image. All goes well in the autoconfig. routine including recognising my Xircom 'credit card CEM56 dual ethernet/modem' and listing the driver file reference then a line saying "this resource is temporarily unavailable".
Q? please: what does this mean? Is the driver missing from the module? I have already downloaded a driver from the (intel) Xircom site which claims to work with any OS. The vendor of my second hand modem card also confirmed it works with linux, as has the PCMCIA howto page. How do I go about installing driver into the system?
Other than this, autoconfig completes and desktop opens up fine.
I tried a hard disk install from the C:\Dos partition into a Linux partition (left over from Vector install.) and got as far as the LILO boot configuration. I have LILO in my 'master boot record' which I think is preventing me from reconfiguring it to boot up DSL. I just get error messages. How can I delete the previous LILO install or edit it to connect to DSL??
Any help greatly appreciated. DSL is wicked.
