    Angry Booting from GRUB... going insane!

    Hello all can somebody help me with my grub configuration I have been trying for hours and can't BT3 to boot. There is always a kernel panic and an error saying initrd.gz couldn't be executed.

    My folder structure is simple, bootBT3 and BT3
    Here is an excerpt of my menu.lst thanks in advance!

    Code:
    title BackTrack 3 USB Edition
    root (hd0,0)
    kernel /bootBT3/vmlinuz initrd=/bootBT3/initrd.gz ramdisk_size=6666 root=/dev/sda1 rw vga=0x317 autoexec=kdm
    boot

    nah it's installed on a 4gb SD card so there is only one partition however, I did manage to get it to work with this command.
    Code:
    kernel /bootBT3/vmlinuz from=/dev/sda1/ ramdisk_size=6666 root=/dev/ram0 rw autoexec=kdm
    initrd /bootBT3/initrd.gz
    boot
    Thanks anyways everybody
