Angry Debian error


Ok, so i booted from the rescue disk for the 1000th time and this time i typed "rescue root=/dev/hda1"

This time i got the following:
"loading linux.bin"

so it ran through a bunch of stuff everything looked ok till the end at which time i got the following error:

"cramfs: wrong magic
FAT: bogus logical sector size 63222
read_super_block: can't find a reiserfs filesystem on (dev 03:01, block 64, size 1024)
read_super_block: can't find a reiserfs filesystem on (dev 03:01, block 8, size 1024)
kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 03:01"

i am installing this on an IBM thinkpad 755C with no cdrom but i do have a pcmcia nic card, and am tring to install the debian install from the floppy to install from the internet.

Oh well; I really don't know about the floppies.I did do a netinstall with a cd that is made of the floppies and that wouldn't give the option to install reisserfs at all.The kernel that is used there is 2.2.20 and doesn't support anything else then ext2.That might be your problem with the floppies,too.
If you want to install with reisserfs you need the cd-set but I still don't think tou can format / as reisserfs with that and I don't feel like downloading 7 CD's to try it.

Looks like you rebuilt your kernel and forgot to include Reiser support.
