Howdy all, I have a Toshiba Tecra 8000 laptop that I had installed 4.7-release on awhile ago using just the kernel and mfsroot floppies and then getting everything else via ftp. Well, I decided to start all over on this system, only with 5.0-release. I actually made the mini-inst cd, but I booted from the floppies because my cd drive won't boot CDR discs. I noticed that it didn't seem to give me the option to configure the kernel like it did on 4.7, so I just went ahead with a standard install. However, it gave the following errors trying to mount the cd.
Error mounting /dev/ac0 on /dist: Operation not supported by device (19) I'm pretty sure the drive is operational and I know the cd is good because I can mount it on another machine (which I did to make the floppies). Anyway, so then I decided to install via ftp (as I had just done with the 4.7 floppies a few months ago). However, when I booted with the 4.7 floppies, it asked me if I wanted to configure the pc cards (I set usable memory and such). This didn't happen with 5.0, but I could watch on the boot of the floppies and see dmesg output for pccard0 and see the LEDs go solid for my linksys 10/100 card. But, when I go to select the FTP site, I only see sl0 and ppp0 devices. Nothing for my ethernet card. I'm sure I've done something foolish, so any advice is appreciated.
