I have installed BL3 DOS version on an old 486 and it works fine.
Installing was a breeze!

But now I intend to install it on another computer (Pentium III) with
the floppies version, which I couldn't get to do, despite the fact of
being trying it really hard.

First I used the supplied fdisk and made 3 primary partitions (hda1,
hda2 and hda3);

What are the next steps, considering that I want to boot from hda1 and
make a swap area on hda3?

How can I get ext2 partitions?

Do I need just one ext2 partition?

Would you please give me step-by-step instructions so that I could put
BL3 on a 4GB Hd and boot from it the right way?

Can I install a wideband modem right away or do I need first to upgrade
the libraries?

Thanks for your kind attention.
