I have a Compaq Proliant 5000 server at home that I received from work collecting dust and I want to put it to good use.
I have Compaq Smart-2/P Array Controller (v1.94) for the hard drives and an onboard SCSI controller for the CDROM.
The machine is a dual pentium pro 200 with 512k cache each chip and has 512MB of ram.
I popped the CD in and the syetem surprisingly booted fine without a problem. At the boot: prompt I hit enter which brought me to a nice screen that said that I didn't have enough memory. Clearly this was a mistake.
I even tried "linux expert mem=exactmap mem=640@0k mem=511@1m"
linux mem=exactmap mem=640k@0k mem=15m@1m mem=48m@16m
(or something to that effect - I can't remember the exact params however you get the right idea) but that simply locked the machine after it says "Uncompressing Linux....OK"
Anybody have any ideas on this subject?
