I attempted to install 2.8 on a machine with the following hardware:
Intel VS440FX motherboard
Primary IDE master WDC AC28400R disk (8063 MB)
Secondary IDE master WDC AC38400L disk (8063 MB)
Secondary IDE slave Toshiba CD-ROM XM-5702B
Intel Pro 100 PCI ethernet card
ATI Rage Pro graphics card
The boot sequence identifies both hard drives as 8063 MB capacity.
The boot then stops with "wd0: no disk label" and hangs in excess of 30 minutes.
The disk light is constantly on during the hang. I have to hit the reset or
power button to have the box restart.
How can I get a copy of dmesg's output in this situation?
If it's of any importance, this machine used to run Windows 2000.
I've installed 2.8 successfully on a PII-550 with an IDE 8063MB disk
and an IDE CD-ROM. The installation was smooth.
