Interesting thing to notice:- When you are trying to instal Linux onto a new box and you get the following message:-
Kernel Panic: VS: Unable to mount root fs at 08:03
This is no major problem. Just check your cable settings and make sure that the shorter gap between the slots is attached to the ide device. I have made a sketch here:-
Turn the machine off and put the cables on the proper way. You should then be able to install Linux in the normal manner. I guess that this should go onto the wiki, but I've not got round to registering.
