Interesting thing to notice:- When you are trying to instal Linux onto a new box and you get the following message:-
Code:
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.

[jayeola makes notes "I must learn to read :? ]

Ya, in general unable to mount root filesystem means that the drive(s) can't be found.

Make sure they are visible in the BIOS--if they aren't seen there most likely linux won't be able to see them either.

Thx,

P.S. What a scary subject... ;)

In my search to find a solution to this "kernel panic21 problem, I noted the BIOS string and tried to find a manual for the mobo. It's an old Abit- AH6 and a fine mobo at that. Could'nt find one for love nor money. Are there any url's about that sort of thing.?
