Red Hat Linux 6.0 Installation

Post by AR » Sun, 18 May 2003 01:41:39


I have a DELL Inspiron 3200.  I was recently trying to Install Red Hat
Linux 6.0 from a CD.  I thought that I finished the installation and
when it asked to be rebooted, there is this message

VFS : Cannot open root device 00:30


Kernel Panic:VFS:Unable to mount root fs on 00:30.

Can someone please tell me what this means and how to correct it.  

Thanks in advance.



1. Starting Installation of Red Hat Linux 6.0

    Hi, I am installing Linux onto my 8.4 GB hard drive which contains
Win98. I downloaded all rpm's and exc and it is on my computer.....When I
reboot my PC while the Linux bootable floppy is in, everything goes fine
until the first screen that u see when installing not the welcome sign. It
said I have to press enter to install or upgrade, so I do. It checks and
performs auto-probing. At the end of it test the last thing it said was

    Ramdisk: compressed image found at block 0
    CR C error VFS: Cannot open root device 08:21
    Kernel panic: VFS unable to mount fs on 08:21

I am not sure what that means????? And then It stops and the only way I can
restart is to manually turn of the computer the old fashion way. Please help
I would appreciate it if you help me out :-) thanks please respond ASAP :-)
