    kernel panic: VFS unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(3,1)


    built LFS 6.0 using nALFS and a profile from NALFS.

    Code:
    partition info:
    
    
    hda1 = ext3
    hda5 = ext3
    hda6 = swap
    
    grub:
    root (hd0,0)
    setup (hd0)

    any idea what might be causing this?

    Re: kernel panic: VFS unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(3,1)

    Hello,

    I am getting this same error message after I did the following steps:

    I took a WinXP-dedicated computer and dualbooted
    Red Hat 9.0 on it and decided to go with Fedora Core 4 instead. When I booted from the first ISO, however, I got the same "kernel panic..." message above and can't figure out how to add the / and /boot and SWAP partitions correctly.

    Any help?
