I'm the proud owner of a Tosbiha Satellite 440 CDX Laptop, it's a Pentium 1 - 133mhz with 16mb RAM and a 1.3GB harddisk.
I purchased a new v3.2 DSL cd and it works fine via Qemu on my Win2k box, however when I tried booting from cd on the laptop the following happens:
I've tried failsale, vga=normal, etc and nothing seems to change the failed boot, although in failsafe the error does seem to occurr later, but normally its when it's "setting paths" I think (text scrolls up rather fast). It does appear to detect all the devices fine though (only have Cdrom/HD plugged in).
So erm... help?
I should add I'm quite the linux "n00b" coming from a microsoft career from Dos 3.1 onwards.
