I am new to this and having problems with grub boot loader.
after i run the "boot" command i get "kernel panic: VFS : Unable to mount root fs on 00:00"
when i type root it says (hd0,0): Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
if anyone knows how to get through this so i can accually learn how to use linux thanks in advance
We need a bit more info. which Linux distribution do you have? does GRUB working fine earlier or is it a fresh install?
its a older version of redhat and im it was a fresh install. im wanting to make a firewall router with my old computer and i cant get ircop to work with it. says boot failure. its going onto a 120 gig hdd.
boot up from Installation CD and type 'linux rescue' at boot: prompt.
* if your harddisk is SATA, replace hda with sda.
grub-install /dev/hda --recheck
in case it doesn't work, boot up in rescue mode again and post the contents of grub.conf file here.
