    Add a section something like this

    label=linux-2.6.10
    image=/boot/linux-2.6.10
    root=/dev/hda2

    Replace the image and root to what they are on your system. Read the lilo.conf man page for more info.

    Well, tnx for your help.. But my comp crashed again.. and this time I will start with the 5th time.. I already compiled the kernel.. But its saying:
    Code:
    Kernel Panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(3,1)
    I'm using Debian with Lilo as a boatloader.

    Tnx
    Jst.

    I think you need to point lilo to a new initrd.img for your new kernel...you could make one with:
    Code:
    cp /usr/src/linux-2.6.10/System.map /boot/System.map-2.6.10
    mkinitrd -o /boot/initrd-2.6.10 /lib/modules/2.6.10
    and then add a line to that kernel's section in lilo.conf
    Code:
    initrd=/boot/initrd.img-2.6.10
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    He can't find System.map in /usr/src/linux-2.6.10 but in my /boot/ dir there's already one. I made the initrd.img and I didnt need to add the line because I already had it in my lilo.conf.

    Still doesnt work.
    Tnx anyway
    Jst

    Did you compile your root filesystem into the kernel or did you compile it as a module? Sometimes compiling it as a module would cause this issue.

    How do I know that? I made a full log with all the commands I used for trying to make the kernel work. I can post it here if you want...

    Jst.

    tar -xjf linux-2.6.10.tar.bz2
    make menuconfig
    make-kpkg clean
    fakeroot make-kpkg --revision=custom.1.0 kernel_image
    dpkg -i kernel-image-2.6.10_custom.1.0_i386.deb
    ln -s /usr/src/linux-2.6.10 /usr/src/linux
    mkinitrd -o /boot/initrd-2.6.10 /lib/modules/2.6.10 
    
    Edited /etc/lilo.conf
    image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.10
