As said earlier this week, one of my plans is to test Xen the upcomming holiday.
As I need for this a new debian install thats the first thing to start with. As my current dev box is pretty old (Its somewhere from 2000, with only a 800 MHz CPU and 128MB RAM), its going to be fun.
Firstly, as I dont have any CD-r’s anymore, and the box dont want to start with a USB stick to boot, there is no OS on it, and I dont have another floppy disk as the one in that box I have a problem.
After trying some stuff around I found a BIOS update, that should support USB booting. I also found a HD that has still debian on it, so we have 2 things. Now only need to find a floppy, what I need to use for the BIOS update. That wasnt that difficult 😛
Now I have those all I need to make a USB stick empty, and try to update it. More to follow soon?
