Problem running salix
I installed Salix 13.37. I installed it on an external hard drive and my laptop is a dell inspiron 1540 with an intel pentium. I installed the default kernel hugesmp.s. I ran the autoinstall option dedicating my entire external to salix. When it restarted, LILO loaded and I chose linux (trying to dual boot with windows) and then it put up BIOS data check successful followed by:
[7.148184]kernel panic-not syncing: VFS: unable to mount root fs on unknown-block
[7.148184]Pid:1, comm: swapper Not tainted 126.96.36.199.6-smp#2
[7.148296] Call Trace:
And it continues in that fashion for a few more lines. BTW, I did try installing the other kernel option of huge.s but I got the same result. Any help that you can give me will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
