    an errors in the boot sequence:
    mounting local filesystems:mount:fs type supermount not supported by kernel
    mounting other filesystems:mount:fs type supermount not supported by kernel
    when i want to mount floppy there is also this error"mount:fs type supermou
    nt not supported by kernel".

    Good luck

    Hi @ all

    can someone send the 2.6.9 patch from to "cybers19 at".

    I do not have access to the 81 port, because the company in wich i am working is blocking this port.
