Can anyone say what might be my problem if I were to tell you
that I have a bootable floppy with an ext2 file system aboard, that
runs smoothly on my bog-standard Dell machine but halts when I pop
it into any other: I've tried portables,IBM's and Compaqs.
The particular place it stops is right after "mounting root file system"
is announced and where I expected init to kick in. I used Lilo v13
with kernel 1.1.54.
I disconnected extra disks and boards to get back to the base system
in the hope that the boot-disk was looking for a file on another file
system - but nothing doin'.
Any ideas ?
