I'm trying to upgrade a Red Hat 6.0 system to 6.1, and I'm getting stuck.
My current root is on /dev/sda5. The boot disk successfully loads the SCSI
driver, but for whatever reason it doesn't see /dev/sda5, and complains
that there are no Linux partitions. It only seems to see /dev/sda1 and
possibly /dev/sda2 (sda1 is an NT 4 partition, sda2 is the primary
partition for which sda5 and sda6 are logical partitions).
I've tried specifying root=/dev/sda5 at the initial boot disk prompt, but
it doesn't work. Red Hat 6.0 boots perfectly fine from a boot floppy disk
pointing to /dev/sda5, and otherwise works fine.
