VFS:can't mount rootfs on "sdax" or unknown block (0,0):silly,but worked

don't listen to your livecd,it says your harddisk is sda1,sda8,sda10 or something,don't look into you /dev/,and find sda1,sda8 or something:

if you harddisk is IDE,write root=/dev/hdax in you menu.lst,don't write root=/dev/sdax,or it will stuck in booting:
