Problem booting up from Floppy
Hi I am new to Puppy, I have got it up and running OK on one machine.
However I have been trying to get it going on an older Pentium that has no means of booting from a CD.
The machine works fine on Win 98se.
I have loaded the Three files vmlinuz, image.gz and usr_cram.fs and set up the Pupxide file as per instruction.
When I boot from boot2pup.img floppy that I created. I goes through the boot proceedure and it find the above files on C drive OK.
It seems to get a long way through the bootup but then I get the following message "PCI: No IRQ known for interupt PIN C of device 00:0a.2
Please try using pci=biosrq. hcd.c Found HC with no IRQ. Check bios/pci 00:0a.2 setup
Now I do not know what to do next ??? where do I try and set pci=biosrq
Any suggestions would be most welcom
Many thanks in advance
