Which version of Linux ? What BIOS level?

Have a look at http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/locate/44_1126.html

it talks about change to video support in the BIOS....

I am using the BIOS version P8 dated 11/8/2000. i did a rompaq update again.
I am trying to install linux version 9.0 or mandrake 9.2 version.

i tried to perform the installation using the noprobe option and it still hanged on probing for monitor: unknown.

Thanks

Denis,

I've reached the limit of my knowledge here... HP support talks about LINUX way before 9.0 for teh Pl1600, I append a very old guide for LINUX installs but other than that .. sorry..
