|I have a question. I have extracted a VMLINUZ and an INITRD from an installer CDROM. I'd like to use the INITRD with a compiled version of DSL kernel VMLINUX to boot the N2200 then install the rest of the package over the net.|
Is this possible, do you think?
no, i think it is not possible, because the ibm firmware
bootloader dont tell the kernel to use initrd.
Any chance you could post a detailed guide for us beginners, please 8363?
I've downloaded your image from Lycos.de, and managed to get it to boot over NFS. However, I'd really, *really* like to follow your instructions step-by-step and learn how to compile and build a kernel for the N2200 8363. Then I'd be able to keep practising and hopefully get to grips with it.
Thanks for your postings anyway.
