Subject: Re: install ISO not bootable
Date: Sun, 6 Sep 2009 16:52:55 -0300
is there any way I can boot the CD through yaboot? I&#39;m not familiar with this program. I googled about it and I found out I can type something like:<br><br>cd:1,/boot/yaboot<br><br>but that doesn&#39;t work for me. I guess it has something to do with the &quot;boot&quot; directory on the ISO image, but I don&#39;t know if I can point to other file (like /boot/ibmpower).<br>

<br>any other suggestion of how to boot will be appreciated, when the CD doesn&#39;t boot itself. there&#39;s a Red Hat already installed on the machine, if it helps. and I think the floppy drive isn&#39;t working, so I can&#39;t use it (it shows input/output errors when I try to access some disks). so my options are: use yaboot to boot the CD, do a network install (never done it) or use the existing Linux. any idea?<br>
