  • Thread-topic: cannot install via network or USB

I am trying to install Xen on an IBM 336 server. This machine doesn’t have a CD. I managed to get the PXE process working (boot and tfp file transfer), except I got a kernel panic after install.img loaded. I tried copying the files off the install CD onto a USB stick, and making it bootable with Syslinux, but that just stalled at a boot: prompt. I can boot the server up with a copy of DamnSmallLinux on my USB stick.


Does anyone have any suggestions?
