Need help booting Puppy from HD with 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. It 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 process 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

The floppy disk has the file "autoexec.bat", where you can add the "pci=".
I don't recall the exact content of the autoexec.bat file, but as I recall, tiny.exe was used, so there should be a line in there that starts with "tiny.exe ..... ".
-- insert your "pci=biosrq" at the end of that line.
