Finding the files isn't my pr

Finding the files isn't my problem though Smile
I did that and I got myself a nice CD-R copy and I got the Mac partitioned and a kernel to load. When it goes for the packages to install though it craps out on me, unable to find the CD for what it needs.

I think it's because the old Apple CDROM (it's a 6x or 8x) can't do CD-R's. Could be problems working the partitions. Bottom line is i'm looking for a printed 1.2 installer. Thanks though Smile

Is there any particular reaso

Is there any particular reason for 1.2? There is direct support for 2.x and 3.0 for NuBus install kernels.

Hrmm, well I could be overloo

Hrmm, well I could be overlooking somthing simple like the format of the CD. As for why, 1.2 cause I have documentation based from 1.2. That and the newer the linux the more crap "features" are in the kernel and distribution.

Thanks for your help though, if I run into more problems i'll get them into a more appropriate section. Smile
