    really cant understand why this is happening...ive tried everything without success..

    first i tried extracting the initrd image and modifying init..
    3) 'cd /boot'
    4) 'mkdir newinit'
    5) 'cd newinit'
    6) 'gunzip -c ../initrd-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5.img | cpio -idmv'
    7) 'vi init'
    8 ) Find 'mount /sysroot' (near the end of the file)
    9) Delete or comment this out
    10) Replace with 'mount -o defaults --ro -t
    ext3 /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 /sysroot' where /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
    is the mount point for /
    11) ':wq' out of vi
    12) 'find . | cpio --quiet -c -o >../newinitrd'
    13) 'cd ..' - you are now in /boot
    14) 'mv initrd-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5.img initrd-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5.bak' -
    backup current initrd img file (just in case)
    15) 'gzip -9 < newinitrd > initrd-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5.img'
    16) Reboot the computer

    then tried make install...no luck..then built SCSI support into the kernel...nothing!...still the same blasted messages... even tried commenting the initrd line in grub.conf (i am really desperate!)..is this a bug in FC5 has anyone successfully compiled a new kernel in an FC5 box....
