I set up everything on my usb stick to start the installation of linux and when i start the kernelloader, it goes until i see "2ps2smap.irx loading...". there it rests a few seconds, then i can (or can not) see other comands flying by very fast and thats it. The loading process ends there and nothing happens. Ive tried different kloaders (2.0 ,1.9 and 1.6), nothing worked. Whats wrong? I googled the problem and i found nothing. Thats weird, because normally i can find everything to use problems with google :S I hope someone can help me! PS: Mega Man, i truly appreciate your work. Well done! PSS: Ill go to bed now, its 1 am (utc+1h). See ya guys tomorrow!

If it still fails, download my ps2linux_v0.7.zip from http://www.4shared.com/dir/10437217/89c160fc/PS2-Linux_Distro.html and then use the config.txt --> \ps2linux\install\config.txt by copying it to the mc0:\kloader directory using ULaunchELF. It may be that you have a late model version 10 and it is being recognized by kloader as a Slim (when it is actually a FAT PS2). By placing the FAT config.txt into mc0:\kloader, you are forcing it to start as a FAT PS2 configuration.

I did like you said, i forced kloader to see my ps2 like a fat one by copying the config fil from your inhstaller to the kloader folder. Now it started. Thank you very much! Have a nice new year :)

I failed at some settings and restarted the ps2 at which point i got stuck at exactly the same spot i could not find the mc0:\kloader directory on the memory card i even tried a new memory card but it still would not load using freemc to load with as soon as i got the config file you posted it will now load
