    kernelargs /boot/vmlinuz 2.6.3-4mdk"but after booting there was error
    message:"could not find kernel image:linux" and a boot prompt"boot:"
    the bootlaoder is lilo and is installed in the MBR,plz wirte me the correct
    mkbootdisk options in the light of this lilo.conf file:
    boot=/dev/hda
    map=/boot/map
    default="windows"
    keytable=/boot/us.klt
    prompt
    nowarn
    timeout=100
    message=/boot/message
    menu-scheme=wb:bw:wb:bw
    image=/boot/vmlinuz
    label="linux"
    root=/dev/hda8

    I'm no guru, but perhaps it's the

    2.6.3-4mdk
    portion of of

    /boot/vmlinuz 2.6.3-4mdk
    Try taking that out.

    You can boot into either Mandrake or Linux, but you can't get the boot floppy to work, is that what you're saying?

    Good luck
