Linux Universe CD-Rom

Allo. I'm currently running Linux from the above, but am having problems installing SVGAIB
(which LU lacks). The distribution is in ELF format (:-)) but I cannot get SVGALIB to compile
(:(). If I install the precompiled jobbies, they are ignored and I get the usual 'undefined
reference blah blah'. Anyone have any suggestions?




1. Can't boot Linux Universe Set with Sony CDU535 CD-ROM

I have bought the Linux Universe two CD set and I am having
great difficulty booting.  I give it the command

   'install cdu535 root=/dev/cdu535 sony535=0x340'

It starts the boot process but then fails finally with

'Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 18:00'

And it doesn't indicate it recognizes the Sony CDU535 because
it outputs things like

'no Kotobuki/Matsuchita/Panasonic CD-ROM found'

I have installed an new 850MG harddrive but I don't
think this is the problem.

Any help would be appreciated!  I am getting nowhere.
