I think it might be because I had to hit the reset button after I compiled
the kernel because it some how got jamed up when I was working in x-windows.
I just compiled linux kernel 2.0.1 on slackware 3.0 and I know it compiled
right because when it finished it said 'added linux'
                                        'added dos'
When I booted the kernel after I compiled it I recieved this message:

Partition check:
VFS: Cannot open root device on 03:02
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 03:02

Did I some how*up the filing system when I compiled it??I did a
proper shutdown('shutdown -h now')?!I would be very appreciative if
someone could please respond to this posting.

                Thanks for taking the time to read this,

1. compiling ANY new kernel gives "Kernel Panic"...HELP!

Can someone out there help me?  I've been compiling new kernels for a while now
but I can't compile any newer or older ones right now.  I've been running
1.3.25 for a long time now.  Here's what happens:

1.  I compile a new kernel just fine and re-lilo.  But when I reboot into the
        new kernel, it just gives me a kernel panic saying it can't find the
        root device.

2.  I've done an rdev on them and they all think my root partition is where it
        actually is.  So why can't any of the others find it, yet the old kernel
        (1.3.25) will.

Here's what rdev outputs:

  {area1s24:/} /sbin/rdev vmlinuz
  Root device /dev/hdb3
  {area1s24:/} /sbin/rdev vmlinuz.new
  Root device /dev/hdb3

Please help!

                                                        Thanks,

                                                        Michael
