My expirence is that the DINO I/O chip seems to be the key
element for that problem. Version 1.x of this chip crashes the
system like you describe it (crash during boot ... :-( ) My
DINO version (2.1) allows at least boot the system but the
system crashes when I try to do the next steps within the
One tip i got in this mailing list was to try to install over
network / NFS.
My problem at present is that the TP port of my C180 box seems
to be broken, because i can't get a connection to my Intel
Linux box. I tried to use either 100 Mbps as well as 10 Mbps on
my Intel Linux box. The AUI-Ethernet port I can't test because
I've not glue box from my Intel Linux TP ethernet adaptor to
the AUI ethernet port of my C180 ...
Anybody outthere with an idea in this area ?
Thanks a lot !
