I'm following the Hinsdale How-to upgrade instructions and when I boot from the msftools2.iso cd i get the following message.

"pass init= option to kernel"

Then it hangs.

I tried booting from the floppy disk and got this message.

"invalid compressed format (err=2) system halted"

Again, it hangs.

I've been searching the web and these forums but can't find anything related.

Has anyone ever encountered these two messages?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Bill

I don't think I'm using an add on IDE conroller. Just the one that came with the motherboard.
About corruption - I burned the .iso file exactly how Hinsdale described. Could it be corrupted on the Hinsdale site?
