I want to install MuLinux in my Compaq Prolinea 4/66 but untill now without any success...:( I have 54 mb memory and a harddrive at 1200 mb.

I downloaded all the files for Current release 12r2 "Babilonia" and done as it says in the Install from DOS instruction.

1-unzinp dosstools
2-run unpack.bat

I got a "Installation Disk", then I booted it, I got to a screen telling me that I have to choose how I want to install MuLinix, but I want to install permanetelly in the harddrive. So I choose maintenance to get the prompt then I wrote: CLONE

I answered a few questions, where the files was and where I wanted to install muLinux.

Then I gott a question if I wanted to install Lilo and I want that, then I got a question where I want to intall Lilo and only 1 alternative is given: /dev/fd0 but how do I do to install in the harddrive, in MBR?? I mean what should I write there?

OK, I choose anyway the /dev/fd0 alternative, then the creation of the boot,root,usr disk starts but it fails when MuLinux try to create the boot disk it saids fdformat does not exist!

Then I verify that and boot again but with a DOS startdisket and fdformat exist! in C:\mulinux

What is happening??

Somenthing I forgot is, that I burned a CD containing all the MuLinux files then put all files in my compaq prolinea box.
