Slack 10.1 + VMWare problem
my menu.lst file :

I compiled the 2.6.11 kernel were I built in support for reiserfs and I was still unsuccessful. I got the following error: "Kenel Panic: cannot open root device sda1 or unknown block device".
It seems like the kernel cannot access the disk. I want to build in support for SCSI but I am unsure which option to do this.
The only way I can boot is using the Slack disk 1 cd,using the scsi.s boot image. Can anyone offer any suggestions?

I've not compiled the 2.6 kernel, but if you use 'make menuconfig', there'll be options for SCSI support in there somewhere, VMWare uses Buslogic by default I believe. I'll grab the source later and have a look.200mhz Pentium 1 with MMX, 128mb RAM, 10gb Seagate HDD. Beastly.

Not sure if this helps, but I know the converse of your installation has issues...

Again, this may be just a waste of space, but I thought I would post just incase.
