The english instructions I found on the web for c860 mentioned pressing db prior to start up as a way to get a login prompt. Doesn't work even though I pulled out the battery overnight. I remember finding some trick to doing this on 5600 but now i have an 860.

One of the things I like about slackware is that the default in a non GUI login and you have to type startx for the gui. That way when the gui gets fried you can still maneuver. Even a non-linux type like me gets to learn a bit about command line. How do i escape qtopia on 860 startup.

It makes things a LOT easier if you are already booted & running. You can simply select REBOOT from the popup menu, tap the YES box then hold down the DM or DB keys till the screen darkens & the system boots again. Can keep the Z flat & stable while useing both hands to press the keys.

Und no ger pullin' der batteries, flippin' der svitches und all der odder crup! (G)
