    I'm a TOTAL newb and need help with Linux installation...


    Hey everybody,

    I want let you guys know that I'm almost completely oblivious to linux.
    I recently installed linux (slackware 10) with the help of a friend. After everything has been installed, I get an error message stating " kernel panic : no init found, try passing init= option to kernel"

    I have ABSOLUTELY no idea what this could possibly mean....Can somebody please help me get past this STEP by STEP, seeing how completely ignorant I am with linux.

    thanks,

    manicotti

    This generally has to do with invalid mount points in your bootloader i think..

    A quick google search MOD EDIT - USE THE URL TAGS SO LINKS DON'T MAKE THE PAGE SCROLL HORIZONTALLY

    turned up the following:

    so you can try and boot into safe mode, edit your lilo or if you are using grub you can do it on the fly i think. make sure your mount point is set properly.

    hope this helps!
