Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 00:00
I'm new at Linux though I have been able to load a workstation using Redhat 9. I also had a server loaded but the motherboard fried so I put in a new motheroboard and a bigger hard drive.
I was able to format the harddrive using a DOS diskette with fdisk and format.
When I tried to install Redhat 9 I got the following message:
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 08:01
So, I put the harddrive in that I had previously successfully installed Redhat 9 on, and when I tried to boot from the harddisk I received basically the same message.
What am I doing wrong? Where do I go for diagnostics?
I appreciate any help I can get.
