I managed to get Linux set up on my hard drive (made partitions, installed
kernel & required files, installed Lilo, etc.) but the boot bombs with:
HPFS: hpfs_read_super: Not HPFS
Kernel panic: VFS: unable to mount root
This happens whether I boot direct from the hard disk, or with the Linux
standard boot disk.
I'm using Slackware 2.0.0 from SunSite (disks a1, a2, a3 only) on a Gateway
P4D-66 (486DX2, 8 mb RAM, 8 mb swap) with the Western Digital 540MB drive
(changes made to CMOS as suggested in the Slackware FAQ.) Linux lives on
a 250MB partition.
I've probably forgotten to do something really obvious. If anyone could
point out this obvious thing I've forgotten, I'd appreciate the help.
I speak for myself only. Good thing, too.
