I have tried both ext2 and ext3
with ext2 get the message
kernel panic : unable to mount vfs......
kernel panic:try passing init=option to kernel
I am a newbie and don't know how to take care of this.
I tried booting using the rescue mode of the cd,it too said no linux
partitions with linux file system
Even formated everything and reinstalled every thing as earlier partions
were made using partition magic and saw a post somewhere that it can mess up
am using grub as the bootloader and am writing onto the mbr.
may have to complie a kernel but how to do that and do I have to reinstall
windows shockingly still boots properly.
as a newcommer to the linux world have tried what works for windows the
most...,a fresh reinstall,more than a couple of times but still no luck
