I have tow questions:
1. I followed these steps to make a bootable floppy disk:
1.1. used *rdev /boot/vmlinuz * command to see if my root device is correct or not(my root device was in /dev/hda8 and was correct)
1.2 used *fdformat /dev/fd0u1440* to format my disk
1.3used dd command to copy th kernel image to disk,as in :
iman:/# dd if=/boot/vmlinuz of=/dev/fd0 bs=8192
there wasn't any problem in making the bootable disk ,but when I wanted to test my disk, after loading the vmlinuz and some other tasks some error appeared and booting stoped .the error was:
**kernel panic : VFS : Unable to mount root fs on 03:08**
googled but all the question about this problem was about bulding a kernel or compile the kernel .was not helpful
2.I have a disk that is working correctly(I use it as bootable disk) but when I want to mount it in konsole this error appear:
**mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/fd0,
or too many mounted file systems**
I used *mkrescue* command to set it as bootable disk.
What's wrong with that?
thanks for your attention
