Install Fedora Core 5
Fedora Core 5 is available for the Kuro Box and Kuro Box HG. It is necessary to have U-Boot flashed onto your Kuro Box. This is because the version of glibc used in FC5 does not support the Linux 2.4 kernel. It may be possible to run FC5 on non U-Boot Kuro Boxes but this would require two partitions.
Parts of this HOWTO have been copied from the Project Gentoo Install HOWTO since the beginning part is the same. Just wanted to make sure I gave credit.
Preparing for Install
Start by using any FTP client to upload EM_mode_binaries.tar.bz2 (you can download it from http://kurobox.com/downloads/gentoo to /tmp on the Kuro (hint: Windows may change the extension of the file when you download it from the internet). Then login to your Kuro Box using a telnet client
Kroutoshikou KURO-BOX (IETSUNA) kernel 2.4.17-kuro-box on ppc KURO-BOX-EM login: root Password: kuro (kuroadmin on HG)
