problem with booting to new kernel (2.4.21) with Grub
I have Redhat 9 currently installed, and for some reason my mobo (ASUS P4T-E) doesn't like the floppy driver being built into the kernel, so I had to rebuild it making it a module, however the source for kernel 2.4.20-19.9 that comes with RH 9 won't recompile, keeps giving me errors that header files are missing. So I downloaded 2.4.21 from kernel.org and attempted to compile it, which I was able to do, however at boot time it doesn't like it, here is my grub.conf
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You do not have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /, eg.
# root (hd0,1)
# kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hdb2
# initrd /boot/initrd-version.img
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.20-19.9)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.20-19.9 ro root=LABEL=/ hda=ide-scsi
title Linux (2.4.21)
kernel /boot/bzImage vga=791 root=/dev/hdb2 read-only
title Windows XP
for some reason my linux partition /dev/hdb2 is not being recongnized, it has been extremely frustrating, and I don't know if it is seeing it at boot time, all I see is my cdrom hdc and my zip hdd, and I have built ide support into the new kernel. please help...
