Hi im trying to install Mandrake Linux 9.1 on a compaq prosignia 150 mhz with 80 Mb of memory.
However when i start the install it runs extremely slow and says i only have 16 mb of memory.
I found out you have to insert your memory in the kernel with mem=80M but! when i do this it gives kernel panic messages
Saying it was unable to mount some sh**..
CAN ANYONE HELP ME?!
Please i have looked everywhere and getting desperate..
Any help is welcome ANY! sad.gif
