In my Dell laptop unable to boot error 15: file not found


Hello,
I am new to linux, I installed redhat linux 9 in my Dell laptop
which is already having vista installed in it, so it is dual boot system now, in redhat linux kernel vesion 2.4.20.8 I am unable to connect to Inernet, use my USB key and lot of other funcions, so I decided to install new kernel which is 2.6.19.2


My /boot/grub/menu.lst file is as follows




#NOTE: you have /boot partition this means that all kernell and initrd #path are relative to /boot/,
#eg.
#root (hd0,2)
#kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hda5
#initrd /initr-2.6.19.2.img
#boot= /dev/hda

default =1
timeout =10
splash image = (hd0,2)/grub/splash.xpm.gz

title Red Hat Linux (2.4.20.8)
root (hd0,2)
kernel/vmlinux-2.4.20.8 ro root=LABEL=/ hdc = idc-scsi

title DOS
rootnoverif (hd0,0)
chain loader + 1
title My Distro (2.6.19.2)
Test Kernel (2.6.19.2)
root (hd0,2)
kernel /boot/bzImage-2.6.19.2 ro root=LABLE=/ hdc=ide-scsi
initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.19.2.img


Every thing went well So i saved it and when I am trying to reboot the system trough Test Kernel (2.6.19.2) I am getting following error:

Booting 'Test Kernel (2.6.19.2)' root (hd0,2)
Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
Kernel /boot/bzImage-2.6.19.2 ro root = LABEL = /hdc = ide-scsi
Error 15: File not found
press and key to continue....

I am unable to understand how to solve the problem please help me in this regard, pleaseeeeee help me.

RH9 is very old. Unsupported probably - try Fedora 8 (or even 9).
For your current problem, lose the "/boot" - on both kernel and initrd.

hello syg,
Instead of RH9, I am planning to install Redhat enterprise linux 5, I am a software trainee I am working on socket programming, in previous post you suggested me to install fedora which one would be better.

If you have a license for EL5, do that - especially if you are developing for customers using it.
Fedora is what took over from the Redhat "x" releases as a public testing environment for Redhat. More "bleeding edge", but possibly not as stable as the Enterprise levels.
