[mu SETUP] VFS : Insert root floppy and press ENTER ? -- Next step

Thank you all for your answers !

The boot parameter floppy=thinkpad made me go one step further on my IBM
Thinkpad 340 with 4Mb of RAM.

I now have the following :

Partition check:
hda: hda1
RAMDISK: Compressed image found at block 563

MicroSoft? is that some kind of a toilet paper?

/linuxrc: Cannot fork
VFS: Insert root floppy and press ENTER [Here I simply press ENTER]
EXT2-fs warning: mounting unchecked fs, running e2fsck is recommended
VFS: Mounted root (ext2 filesystem).
Trying to unmount old root ... okay
Unable to open initial console.
[jam-stopped there]

Looking in the faq I tried the following at boot prompt :

mulinux floppy=thinkpad f1722 load_ramdisk=1 prompt_ramdisk=0
ramdisk_size=3000 ramdisk_start=563

--- Notice that on my thinkpad, I can't type it all ! It stops after a
certain number of characters.
--- Notice that I have an old black and white screen on my thinkpad.

Thank you

Francis Girard
