Sooo... mandrake 8.1 is great for the install and easily configurable.. runs on p133 32mb ram with X11 if i need it... but it doesnt like the wlan drivers. (proxim harmony 802.11b) using prism2_cs.o drivers. So i get this great idea. Install WarLinux. The problem being the laptop has no internal ide cdrom. it has a pcmcia cdrom and warlinux is cd-bootable. So i booted up mandrake and copied over the contents of the cd to /mnt/xwifi/ which is mounted from /dev/hda6. the question is on bootup I have grub boot the kernel from /mnt/xwifi/isolinux/linux (linux being the kernel). it boots the kernel untill it mounts the root filesystem. then it says kernel panic. no init (or somthin like that) And then displays try passing the kernel init=
how do i get this thing running..
