    kernel panic help, (i have no cd to fix it)


    I recently upgraded my ArchLinux system, and ran into a kernel panic error.

    The error: kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)

    my situation: only a floppy drive to boot off of (for somereason, my dvd drive stopped working on start up, so i cant boot off of it)

    everyone i talk to says how to boot off of a cd and fix it, but none know how to fix it from a floppy.

    I believe you can boot Archlinux using those instructions :
    http://www.archlinux.org/static/docs...tml#floppyinst

    The "root floppy" they refer to can be made using this file :
    ftp://ftp.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/dist...mages/root.img
