I am trying to boot from C:\ via loadlin onto Redhat 5.1 on /dev/hda2
Big disk (14.4 Gb, used fips to make room for partitions)
255 heads, 63 sector, 1024 cylinders (there are more...)
/dev/hda1 1 1 990 7952143+ c Unknown
/dev/hda2 991 991 1121 1052257+ 83 Linux native
I copied the vmlinux file (I recompiled the kernel) to C:\ and booting
proceeds OK (similar to that of the floppy boot disk I made), until
VFS: Cannot open root device 03:42
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 03:42
Is this the 1024 cylinder limitation in BIOS in a new disguise?? Is
there anything I can do to boot successfully via loadlin?
