I have a mostly stock RH 4.2 system, and I now have a 5.0 CD-ROM.
Step 1: Try to do a complete new install onto an unused partition. Create
boot image. Start up. First screen (claim I am novice, just hit enter).
Kernel starts, does a couple of things and then dies at
"CANNOT OPEN ROOT DEVICE 08:05"
which is odd given that the root device is supposed to be the IDE CD-ROM
drive. (there are a couple of scsi disks onto which I want to install, but
they are not supposed to be the root device).
Step 2: Try to upgrade the present system. Go to
and do a
rpm -i -U *rpm
Tons of errors about such things as missing shells.
Either of these methods would be fine with me, if I could just get it to
work. Any ideas?
