I am new to linux and I am trying to install a SLAX based distro to hard drive. I have the distro copied to /hda1 according to the install instructions. When I boot the distro from CD, the distro mounts the /dev/hda1 to /mnt/hda1, I can see all the files are there but if I reboot without the CD it doesn't boot, just a flashing underscore. I can boot back up with the CD, use fdisk /dev/hda, then the p command and it tells me my partition is not bootable, I use the a command, then the w command and I get: errror 16: device or resource is busy. If I run fdisk again and use the p command, it now shows the drive as bootable, but when I restart (with the CD out) all I get is a flashing underscore again. Can someone point me in the right direction?
