Installing Linux on a TaskSmart C1500R


I'm attempting to install Linux on the TaskSmart C1500R.
I have installed a SA3200 and a second processor.

Since this is a TaskSmart, I'm unable to use SmartStart to install the OS or System partition.

Slackware installs fine, but doesn't boot after the installation unless I boot from a CD/Floppy. I don't get the LILO prompt at all.

Any one who has tried installing Linux to these machines? Any pointers are greatly appreciated.

If anyone knows if I can install the Utilities partition or if I can put a standard 1850R BIOS onto this machine, please let me know.
