got the lappy set with red hat 7.3, but i cant get my NTFS partition up. it doesnt come up in the LILO, but the partition is there because the it came up in disk druid. i tried adding

"/dev/hda3 /winnt ntfs 0 0" to mtab, but it says ntfs is not a known partion type. i tried to recompile the kernel, but i cant find the source!! what can i do, or is that partition fried?

well, i found the source, and im currently recomping. i made a new config, b/c i couldnt find any red hat config it used to make this installation in the first place. i made sure ext3 and ntfs were present, and lets just hope that i got all the essentials in this recomp.

I would have helped you, if you had some patience. Yeah all you really need to do is just recompile your kernel, and then run /sbin/lilo to link it to your new kernel. Next time email me I would like to help but I cant check the boards all the time.

ya i know, shoulda just emailed some one. i went pretty quick, cuz i wanted to get those files. now that thats done, i gotta make a deision: should i reformat, so i can put 2k back on, then put linux back on, or is there anyway to fix the ntfs partition. im kinda helpless right here in that reguard, cuz the 2k cd doesnt understand lilo being in the MBA.

If you go the "install 2k, install rh" route, don't forget to name your ntfs partition during the rh install (that tip is from Rax, btw).

Inspired by the last RFA I just tried a couple of distro’s on an old machine, but had mixed luck:

SUSE 8.1 live eval - worked fine but looks exactly the same as knoppix but without all the extras. (except for a rather fancy default background).
Virtual Mandrake - didn’t have enough memory to boot.
Mandrake 9.0 - Wouldn’t boot into the GUI as it didn’t seem to be friendly with the graphics card. (also after checking out the command interface it didn’t have tcpdump, or netcat) but I got it on the internet at least.
Redhat 7.3 - didn’t want to fit on the drive.

(Just thought I’d share the results for anyone else looking to get linux running on a low spec machine.)

EDIT: Machine I was testing them on was 133MHz/48RAM with a 1GB hard drive.

I had mandrake 9.0 running on a packard bell 75mhz cpu with 32mb of ram. yea, the GUI was ugly. but it worked. I just finished building my new server. so I won't have to worry about the horrible GUI anymore.
