I'm attempting to install OpenBSD 2.6 on my laptop. (first time)
It's a Compaq LTE 5300, with a Pentium 133 processor, 32 megs ram.
It fails just after loading the kernel. I tried many different floppies,
thinking at first that it was yet another bad disk. Nope... Same thing
every time. I tried the bootdisk in two other machines, and everything
went perfectly. It's just this one computer that's giving me grief.
Without further ado, this is what it gives me:
probing: pc0 com0 com1 com2 com3 apm pci mem[639K 15M a20=on]
disk: fd0 hd0*
>> OpenBSD/i386 BOOT 1.23
booting fd0a:/bsd: 1306624+1908736+140344 total=0x433438 start=0xe100020
entry point at 0x100020
Then it freezes. I have to power off the machine.
I've tried manually specifying parameters at the prompt, such as
boot fd0a:/bsd -c
with the same results.
Any insight here? Or am I just screwed as far as running OpenBSD on this
particular piece of hardware?
