SubjectLinux on 6200T (ProStar / AJP / Kapok ) MMX boot problem !!
Date
I found some one in the UK who has also AJP 6200T (Pentium 200MHz with
MMX)

Thast would be Red Hat Linux 4.1 if you didn't know it.
PCW == Personal Computer World , a british computer magazine.

so it appears to be a problem with MMX machines. I am assuming this
machine is
the AJP 6200 with a __non__ MMX 200 Mhz pentium processer.

Does any one know why a pentium with MHz with fail to a linux boot image
such as `boot.img' in the RH Linux. Note this problem also happens with
Slackware, and Drop In Linux from my Infomagic LDR Dec 1996 CD ROM.

I would be interested if other (U.S.) users with the Prostar 6200 series
have similar
boot problems.
