I gained an old machine, what's config is:
- Pentium 2, 300 MHz
- 147 MB SDRAM (recently extended)
- 3 GB IDE HDD - primary master
- 10 GB IDE HDD - primary slave (recently added)
- 52x CD-ROM - secondary master floppy drive
- 2x USB
- 2x PS/2
- 2x eth card (recently added 1 of them)
- 2x video card (I wanted to try multi-seat :D:D:D) (recently added 1 of them)
Before my tries, there were Win98, what perfectly(lol) worked with this config.
With Ubuntu 10.04 alternate CD, I didn't think, that it can be installed with graphical interface.
I thought about LVM .. but no, I thought this is too slow processor. To the primary master(hda, 3GB) I put
/boot with ext4, after Grub
error: unknown filesystem ext3; and swap for the other free space.
To the primary slave(hdb, 10GB), I put
/ with ext4.
I've installed GRUB2 to MBR. It always showed me some error, and
grub rescue> prompt. Finally I've learnt use that, and I tried to set prefix..., ls, insmod (hd0,1)/boot/grub/.... That last command always shows me error: unknown filesystem.
How may I partition this? The installion gets no errors, the
/boot is filled with data files(linux images, etc.).
Is there any other suggestion to get on with old systems?
