    now i have this though....


    *Checking root filesystem
    fsck.ext3: No such file or directory while trying to open /dev/ROOT
    /dev/ROOT:
    The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2 filesystem. If the device is valid and it really contains an ext2 filesystem (and not swap or ufs or someting else), then the superblock is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock:
    e2fsck - b 8193 <device>
    *Filesystem could not be fixed



    what the heck does that mean?? i think i forgot to configure something in the kernel, thats how i solved my last problem.
    You said you got pass that error, can you tell me what you did?

    It means that "/dev/ROOT" does not exist, and that you would need to make /dev/ROOT whatever your root partition is, such as /dev/sda4 for example.
