Toshiba 2500CDS hard drive install and/or linux install help
I've been compelled to make use of a Toshiba 2500CDS.
I am now trying to put in a hard disk from another computer. The
Windows XP screen comes up, and then the black friendly "Welcome to
Windows" screen, and it seems to have just loaded "agp440", but then we
get a blue screen telling us that the hard drive is corrupt. Tecnical

You can use fdisk.
See the Partition HOWTO for detailed information.

....but it does see it when I open Disk Utility. The hard drive doesn't
show on the OS X installation step, "Select a destination volume where
you want to install the Mac OS X software". Does the drive need to be
initialized or something? Some info I found said that a message would

see no option to initialize with the OS X installer disc. It's odd that

http://blogs.ittoolbox.com/wireless/networks/archives/initia...New Hard Drive -- Can one transfer data from a previous Eudora installation onto a new installation on the new drive?
Just installed a new Hard Drive which is now the Master, and
re-installed Eudora 3.0 (yes it's old but it works just fine for me).
My old drive (now the slave) contains all my previous settings (i.e,
address book & saved messages. Can one gracefully transfer this
information into the new installation.
For example, is it a matter of simply copying certain files from the
old drive to the new one? If so, what files?
Thanks in advance

...linux askmethod, install from hard drive
On a dual boot system, linux can be downloaded to a FAT32 partition,
and then just one cd is burned. "linux askmethod" can be used to find
the .iso images on the FAT32 partition. how would that be done with
solaris? not eager to burn 5 (?) cd's, one is more than enough.

I'm building my own pc and want to run linux on it rather than windows.
This is going to have a brand new hard drive in it that has never had

(see the above thread) I noticed that Mandriva only ran off the hard
drive. It was akin to a demo rather than a real OS. It did look
nice, I'll grant you that. For a minute, as a Microsoft shareholder,

I've got a laptop that currently dual-boots Debian and Windows 2k. I'd
like to replace the Debian installation with Slackware (I'm more used to
Problem is, the laptop has no floppy drive, a questionable CDROM drive (it
reads commercial CDs fine, but hates anything created in a home burner),
and is too old to boot from the network or USB devices.
So, what I'd *like* to do is boot Debian and kick off a Slackware
installation (via NFS) from within that, which would then overwrite the
Debian install itself.
Can it actually be done? I'm suspecting not, as by the time Debian's
booted to a prompt where I can set anything off from, the OS is all up and
running and won't let something so horrible happen (unlike firing the
install off from MSDOS say, where DOS will let things stomp all over
memory if they want!)
(My other options are taking the hard disk out of the laptop and sticking
in another machine to do the install, or finding a floppy drive for the
laptop... I doubt the latter's going to be easy though)

if you have got a fast&cheap inet connection, why not try gentoo? it
sure is a bitch to install, but as soon as you get it up&running (give
it a week or two) its cool. gentoo compiles itself on your machine, but
forget the "optimized-system-gives-3%-performance-gain" aspect, i love
it because it works smooth and is easy to maintain. e.g., software
install or complete system update takes you exactly one command. each.
documentation is very good, step-by step, and there are also wiki's and
if gentoo is not your thing, you can always resort to suse (fool-proof
install; but updating means reinstall and gettings things like dvd play
to work is a real pain in the y'know) or knoppix (save your /home and
settings to a usb-stick; runs from live cd).
HTH, florian (gentoo-noob)
ah yeah, system requirement for a non-graphical linux is like *486 cpu
and stuff, so if your box is newer than three years, it should do fine.

I have a new hard drive installed in my G4 Powerbook. I went through the
erase process with Disk Utility (which I guess is the way to format or
initialize a new HD) and partitioned it also. Now when I select a
partition to install as a "destination", it says "You cannot install Mac
OS X on this volume. You cannot start up your computer using this
volume." Great, so I go to "Change startup disk" and it doesn't give the
hard drive as an option because it doesn't have any OS on it! This is
crazy. Thanks much for any help.
