installing on usb2 external drive, kernel panics
first, i'm a total noob when it comes to linux, so let me know if i'm telling you guys things that don't make any sense and i'll try to do better...
mandrake 10, which installed fine on an 80GB Maxtor drive in an external usb2 enclosure
all on a dell inspiron 1100 with a 20GB internal drive that i'm devoting to windows
upgraded bios to allow for booting from external usb devices
here's the problem: mandrake installed fine, or appeared to have done so from all i could tell, but i can't boot. i first tried going through the bootloader, but when i choose linux it gives me a kernel panic:
Kernel Panic: no init found. Try passing init= option to kernel.
