unable to mount root fs on unknown block
I am trying to install FC4 in my linux box which is as follows:
Board: MSI K8T Neo-V with 512 MB
Processor: AMD Athlon 64
Primary master: Western digital serial ATA 80 GB
Secondary master: ATAPI CD-DVD unit
Secondary slave: ATAPT CD unit
The HDD is shared with Win XP
Now the problem:
I run the installation DVD from the secondary master. When the installation program seems to be recognizing hardware,
the following message appears:
Kernel Panic: not syncing: VFS: unable to mount root fs on
This happens very fast, and I had to run the installation several times to be able to copy by hand.
After this the system seems to hang.
In this machine, FC3 works just fine.
I tried the same FC4 DVD on other machines and it works OK.
Any help will be welcome
