Can anyone please help me with a Linux boot problem. I bought the
SNOW 2.2 CDRoms and tried to boot the floppy on two systems. On a
486dx2 66Mhz it boots fine. However I would like to run Linux on
my 386.

Who can help me?

Even if you can not help me could you please give me a internet
address of someone who might be able to help me. Thanks in advance
for your time and trouble.

When I boot linux I get the following error on screen:

Scsi: 0 hosts
Memory : 6660k/8448k available (880k kernel, 384k reserved, 524k data)
Unable to handlekernel paging request at virtual address c1005000
current->tss.cr3=00101000, %cr3=00101000
Kernel panic: Trying to free up swapper memory space

I have the next system:

AMD 386dx40 with copro
8 Mb internal memory
245 Mb hard drive
Sound Blaster 16
Mitsumi dual speed CDRom

Met vriendelijke groet / with regards,
