This problem came completely out of the blue for me. I've successfully used
my RedHat 6.1 Linux box for about 4 months now and I'd be darned if I could
tell you why I got the above error message--which basically halts the bootup
process and the kernel goes into a panic. The only thing I did recently was
install Samba 2.05 for use with Windows machines on my network.
I even used a rescue disk as an alternate way of booting but that
unfortunately led to the same result. Any general input on where I can
start to fix this problem?
