I'd been trying to install IPCOP onto a 2 GB hard drive that just wouldn't take it....on my third try, I got a screen full of writing
Mounting root read/write
ext3 fs 18.104.22.168.19
Suddenly the screen froze up and the last two lines said
I'm Giving up
System is going down NOW!
I laughed so hard it hurt....then I took it as a sign and went to bed.
