    Default Boot problems with bt (kernel panic)

    Hi there,

    I have trawled quite a few fora to find a solution for my problem, but have not yet found anything that helps.

    I'm fairly new to linuxm, besides having worked a bit with Ubuntu, so the finer details of a linux installation is not my strongest side.

    I have a setup that looks like this:

    sda1 = Dell utility.

    sda2 = windows xp.

    sda3 = linux swap.

    sda4 = (this is where i installed bt).

    I installed from the live cd and used "real" install, with the option of using lilo mbr.

    What i boot my pc, I get the lilo asking me which os to use (only bt shows, but thats not the issue right now).

    When i select backtrack, it starts to work, then stops with a message about:

    kernel panic.

    My lilo.conf looks like this:

    boot = /dev/sda
    prompt
    timeout = 60
    #bitmap=/boot/splash.bmp
    change-rules
    reset
    #vga = 769, 771/773/792
    vga = 769
    image = /boot/vmlinuz
    root = /dev/sda4
    label = backtrack
    erad-only

    #xp partition
    other = /dev/sda2
    label = windows
    table = /dev/sda

    Hope someone can help

    Seems i managed to fix it......

    Something with mounting from a folder:

    -bt ~ # mkdir /mnt/backtrack
    -bt ~ # mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/backtrack/

    Still not sure what it does/means

    but there you go....
