After asking my question re laptop-specific installfests, I realised that I
hadn't actually tried configuring the sound since I moved from 6.2 to 7.0,
so I tried it.
I ran sndconfig, it picked what seemed like the right Yamaha chip for my
VAIO and sounded like it made a noise when it played the test sound, so I
figured the volume was just too low. So, I said "Yes" when it asked
whether I heard the sound. Of course, it updated my modules.conf file and
then hung the machine completely!
So, I powered it off and on again and now it hangs when it gets to starting
the APM (power management). I have a nice little bootable recovery CD
here, but that's not going to help much, since the machine doesn't have a
Is there any way I can tell the boot sequence to ignore the modules.conf
file? Alternatively, where can I download a boot floppy image that will
allow me to mount my hard drive, so I can move the file so I can reboot
As I say ... Ugh!
Thanks for any help anyone can provide.
