    SubjectLinux on 6200T (ProStar / AJP / Kapok ) MMX boot problem !!

    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.
