Did somebody write a manual so that you can install 3.0 ??
If I do it the old way, will it work ????
with installer, etc ???
I then take the kernels that are in the "sets" dir, and it should boot=20=
The problem I also see on a LC III: it sometimes doesn't get past adb=20
... was an err I saw in 1995 too (on a colour classic).
