Fresh install - root file system error
 
After a fresh install of Debian I came across an error Im hoping you guys can help me with. Ive searched for the error and it appears there are multiple reasons that could be causing it. To compound the problem, Im at work so I dont have the specific error messages.

...so I just installed Lenny (standard install, no desktop) using a USB installer and everything went very smooth. On first boot, the system paused while waiting for the root file system. After a minute or two it just errored out complaining it could not find the root file system and put me at a (vmlinuz) prompt?

My guess is that I need to go into my bios and change my boot priority.. but again, thats just a guess.

Any ideas you have is appreciated.

P.S. all partitions were setup by the debian default. Im using the latest stable netinstall
