Yeah, sure. Im open to ideas for de-bugging. The PC is 1999 vintage so is no "Spring Chicken" I guess. It boots Win98 without a problem and I have had a good scoot around Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device Manager and I can't find anything that is even unstable looking?
I have also tried to boot into Very Small Linux from a CD image. It gets as far as:
but stops dead without unpacking anything. The PC has 64MB of RAM on two Simms, maybe this is just too small for a bootable image?
What's your gut feeling on this one? Does the VSL problem point at any particular reason why your PL image only gets as far as the splash screen? What hardware is likely to cause a conflict at that point in the boot?
Thanks in advance for your help
