I have a IBM RS/6000 7248 Model 43P I am trying to install linux onto.
I downloaded the boot file from the linuxppc-R4 RedHat directory and was
able to boot off of it. But I cannot successfully complete a setup. It
always dies with the message "Panic: unable to mount root restarting in
180 secs." How did you install your copy of linux?
