Unformatted text preview: vice conflict problems - collect information on IRQ (Interrupt) and DMA (Direct Memory Address). Check for conflicting problems. Use the DOS MSD utility or Norton utility. Default options entered to the LILO boot command will be passed to the Linux kernel every time it boots. Review your computer's BIOS settings. If your computer accesses a hard drive in LBA mode, check Use linear mode. Red Hat Certified Engineer (RH302) Loadlin can load Linux from MS-DOS; it requires a copy of the Linux kernel (and an initial ram disk, if you have a SCSI adapter) to be available on an MS-DOS partition. The only way to accomplish this is to boot your Red Hat Linux system using some other method (e.g., from LILO on a diskette) and then copy the kernel to an MSDOS partition. When installing Linux to coexist with Microsoft Windows NT use the bootpart utility. Choosing an installation class (for Red Hat 5.2 only): Workstation (automatically erase all Linux partitions from your computer's hard drives); Server (automatically erase all partitions from your computer's hard drives); Custom (gives you complete control over partitioning-related issues. If you have installed Red Hat Linux in the past, the custom-class installation is most similar to past installations.) Know the differences among CDROM, FTP, NFS, SAMBA, and Hard Disk installation. Checking the installation log file. View boot time information such as console install screens, virtual consoles, dmesg. Use page up/page down at the console. Understand the standard boot process. Verify the installation status: login as root and view dmesg. Generate the text file and automate the installation using kickstart mode. Install Linux in RAID configuration. Troubleshoot hardware conflict problems during Linux installation. Configure Linux installation on laptop with PCMCIA card and APM (Automatic Power Management) system. Understand the kernel daemon, etc/conf.modules and module parameters. Understand /llib/modules/... directory structure and contents. Sy...
