I have selected the "Server" install package and selected "everything"
seems to go fine. However, when I got to the 4th CD I noticed that
there was a
problem with the install where it started miss-reading the install
packages at the
last 10 minutes (of 135+ minutes of a complete install) and I had a
trying to force re-reads and retries until all the packages were finally
That added 30 minutes more and approx. 20 packages that had to be
But the installation did complete and finally was ready for a reboot.
NOTE: Nowhere in the installation was an emergency diskette asked!!!
Now a reboot commenced and then Grub came up interactive (no splash
no kernel preconfigured). Dang.... Now what!?!?
This is unlike Redhat where the Grub splashscreen comes up and
has the kernel information already installed. Is this normal???
Hello, my name is Rodrigo. I have installed RH 9.1 last June and since
then kept it updated through RH Network Alert. Now the desktop
distribution from RH is ended and the natural way to go on seems to be
with Fedora Project. How can I do to move to Fedora without uninstalling
RH? I have configured and personalized the PC through all these months
and I do not want to lose all this work. I have read the site in RH and
Fedora but I can't find a smoth path to change it.
I'm sending through the ADSL connection.
Ich danke Ihnen vielmals.

I have a colocated server and when I have to get them to reboot it they
just hit the power switch which can't be good for filesystems and
Is there a way I can create a user account that will reboot the server
This way I can give them a user account and they simply login with that
account and it reboots the server..
I am guessing I need to create a login script or something similar but I
am not sure how to get the system to execute the script at login if that
is the way to do it..
Just had a strange problem.
One of my systems (system 3) om my KVM suddenly hung with no mouse. I
rebooted and X would not start because it could not detect my mouse (MS
Intelimouse). I switched to another mouse (direct attach) and everything
seemed to work fine. Whenever I attached my mouse to my KVM (Linkss
4-port) it would hang.
Since I had port 4 empty, I reassigned my system to port 4 and now
everything works fine.
Is there any way I can fix port 3? Or is this just an anomally?
Then how to increase PCI IDE disk speed through adjusting PCI bus
speed? What I've said is: even I tried to improve PCI bus speed by
specifying "idebus=66", the sustainable PCI IDE disk data transfer speed
is still about 33MB/s, while the hard disks themselves may be capable of
providing higher speed. Thanks.
I definitely know apple and orange, both fruits are my favorite. :)

You are comparing apples to oranges. idebus is the PCI speed in Mhz.
33MB/s is the bandwidth of the PCI bus.

Hmmm... I need some insight to solve this one.
I've set up a FC1 box to access the web through an ADSL device on a UTP network (ie not USB config).
I can ping DHCP-assigned IP 22.214.171.124 say.
I can ping P-t-P addr 126.96.36.199 (gateway?) with mask 255.255.255.255
I can't ping DNS 188.8.131.52 say, Ctrl-C shows packet loss.
I can't ping canonical names www.cnn.com say, Ctrl-C doesn't even report a response.
I've added all sorts of combinations and permutations with 'route add', alack.
It seems as though the further one moves away from the low level functionality, the less name resolving etc one 'sees'.
I've this going before, but can't remember how.
I am aware of the naming issue in the 'Internet Connection Wizard', where one has to enter 'ppp0' as the provider name.
Any insight is appreciated.
