I was finally able to get my wireless to work, so I knew I could now install backtrack and start really digging into linux. But everytime I partition the usb drive and install backtrack on it and then reboot I get the error:
kernel panic- not syncing: vfs: unable to mount root fs on unkown-block(0,1)
any ideas? I really want to learn linux, but this has me stuck. Thank you.
