    what do you have in your grub.conf file?

    I don't know if this is what's causing the problem, but try taking out all that stuff on the end of the kernel line, and try booting without the initrd.

    I just read that there is a bug in that kernel. Does anyone know if the bug is fixed? Or how I can use a different kernel. I cant get the program to load up, what should I do to install an older kernel version?

    The bug had to do with lba mode, which doesn't seem to be the problem here.
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    I removed initrd and that did nothing. What do you guys recommend? Im still getting that message.

    I got it to work. Someone told me it had to do with frambuffer so I turned off framebuffer support in the kernel options. And it works fine.
