<br><font size=2 face="sans-serif">Dear list,</font>
<br><font size=2 face="sans-serif">Would like to enlist some assistance
with an install on an IBM 9112-265 Intellistation.</font>
<br><font size=2 face="sans-serif">Have followed the liveCD install without
many problems.</font>
<br><font size=2 face="sans-serif">Have gotten to the yaboot configuration
and attempted to configure and have dd'd the kernel file rev 32r7 to the
sda1 1meg partition.</font>
<br><font size=2 face="sans-serif">Upon reboot the system fails to find
the kernel file and boot.</font>
<br><font size=2 face="sans-serif">When I have rebooted on the liveCD again
and recieved the prompt to work with i have attempted to try and mount
the sda3 root partition from the original install. I presume because there
is only the LiveCD /etc/fstab with tempfs entries in it &nbsp;i cannot
mount my real root partition and the system knows nothing of the original
parttitioned disk from the install.</font>
<br><font size=2 face="sans-serif">Could someone direct me on what action
to take to mount the original partitions such that i can edit the yaboot
config file and achieve a successful boot from scsi disk.</font>
<br><font size=2 face="sans-serif">or </font>
<br><font size=2 face="sans-serif">can someone please instruct on how to
set up yaboot config correctly such that i can reinstall the lot and get
the bootloader correct.</font>
<br><font size=2 face="sans-serif">Thanks in advance.</font>
