I've not had any trouble with Slackware 8.  Could you clarify a few things?

Does the kernel identify your devices ok?  You can use the navigation keys
to read up the screen?

You do get to the point where you're prompted for the root disk?

You did rawrite color.gz to the floppy that your inserting at this point?

Have you tried doing the color.gz disk again?

hi did anyone else but me have trouble installing slackware 8.0?
i have made the ddisks as instructed and entered the necessary info to
identify my synth and it comes up talking to that point however when i
try to load the root disk , it refuses to load with a error message :
kernet panic unable to load root at 2:1c.
anyone have any ideas, any help would be appreciated.
