The linux kernel contains a small boot header, so that if it is
written to a floppy, the floppy is bootable and loads the kernel
Quote:> When i booted with it i got a kernel panic.
You also have to use the 'rdev' command. The kernel needs to know
where the root partition is. When booting from 'lilo', this is
specified by 'lilo.conf'. When directly booting the kernel, that
source of information is not available. There is an options section
in the kernel image. 'rdev' can put the root device there. The man
pages on 'rdev' should tell you how to do this.
