I get to the end of step "126.96.36.199 Booting for the i386™" where it tells to boot the kernel and no matter what I do, it just reboots the computer! Therefore it looses whatever it tried to put in memory and starts over again. How can I get it to go to the kernel setup?
My Hardware: IBM PS/Valuepoint 486 33MHz 8 MB RAM
This is likely the problem. The install needs more than 8M, somewhere between 12 and 16M last I heard.
If it helps, I have a Valuepoint 486 DX2/66 with 32M of RAM that runs 4.8 flawlessly.
I've got 4.9 running on a 486/33 with 20 MB of RAM, so if you can scrape up that much it should be sufficient. It works fine as a personal mail server with Courier, except that the IMAP folders containing over 10,000 messages cause huge amounts of thrashing when I open them. Takes several minutes.
It also takes nearly three days to build 4.9 from source on a 486/33...
