Hello, I'm a fan of unix. Just recently, I downloaded the Install diskette from the winworldpc archive site, which has AT&T Unix system V 2.1. However, it doesn't seem to like newer hardware, which on some, it gives me an error message after it goes past the copyright message. Like this:
PANIC: HD CONTROLLER: COMMAND ABORTED
Trying to dump 16325 pages.
1 pages dumped.
Reboot the system now.
If you want to know what system I tried to install on, It's a dell oplidex 570, (Can''t remember the exact name, but it is a dell oplidex system from 2002) It has 128 mg of ram, and it's cpu is 1.7 ghz. Also, on some computers, I managed to get past the "Insert the UNIX System Install diskette disk 2" message. But only one of them went past the partitioning screen and manages to do a scan of the hd, but it froze there. I searched everywhere, on yahoo, google and bing. There was one fourm talked about it, but had a different sanario. Looks like it needs an older system to run; I do have a 1993 Lexbook, but the screen wouldn't show on the screen (Looks like a display problem), and I don't want to break the existing Windows 3.1 system on it. My questions is, How can I get it to install on newer systems without problems, If not possible, what kind of older hardware does it work on, (Mainly the hard drive), If I can install on a bigger hard drive, how, and what is it's system requriement? I'm fairly new to unix, and any helpful expert advice would be appreciated.
