I checked on three posts relating to this but was unable to get a working solution after having tried.
Suffice it to say, all the kernels Ive tried wont make it past freeing unused kernel memory.
when I ctrl-alt-del it says stopping all md devices.
2.4.0 compiled on a pentium 133 mmx processor
the other three kernels were from installs of redhat 6.2 7.0 and mandrake 7.2 on other systems.
I was getting a kernel panic on boot unable to mount root fs but I did as the other threads suggested and did an hdb=noprobe and got to the freeing unused kernel memory.
When it should be saying blah blah init Vx.xx
it just stops there, no hd activity. and when I do the reboot ctrl-alt delete I get the stopping all md devices.
I compiled and installed the newest version on lilo and that went fine, I know it is using the new lilo, because it blew away the redhat 7.0 lilo-gui-screen and went to the lilo prompt we have all come to love
Any linux gurus out there have any ideas. I have this great idea for my IO but cant get linux to boot.
