Re: [vox-tech] Ultra DMA support

Sorry I wasn't specific enough.  Here is more info.

1. I am using Redhat 7.0 so I think a 2.2x kernel??
2.  I am planning to instal the kernel 2.4x that was distributed on the
latest LUGOD CD
3. this is hopefully an upgrade
4. I can boot off of a floppy and off of a CDROM (but only to the point
where Linux tries to mount the HD.
5. CDROM is bootable
6. I have a netgear 10/100 that I have used under Linux before.  I connect
to internet through a proxy using that card.  There are two other computers
on that network.
7.  My HD only supports DMA 33 because it is rather old.  I would say that
using Linux without DMA would be a last resort.

I think that I am going to try and use a rescue disk that has a compatable
version of the kernel on it, and then follow the kernel HOWTO.  Thanks once
again for the help.
