Installing Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS 4


Hello Everyone

I am new to this forum, just joined today few minutes ago.
My name is Shantanu.
Please help me successfully installing Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS 4 on my Dell Inspiron Notebook.
I installed Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS 4 on Dell Inspiron 1501 notebook. Initially it didint recognize my SATA HDD. I had to use parameter all-generic-ide. After that everything went perfectly during the installation until the reboot time came. It starts rebooting just fine, seems to find the kernel and begin loading. Then messages appear:

Decompressing Linux done
Booting the kernel.
audit (1170262029.359.0): initialized
Red Hat nash version 4.1.18 starting.

File Descriptor 3 left open

umount /initrd/dev failed: 2
kernel panic - not syncing : attempted to kill init!

Please let me know how to get the system to boot with Red hat Enterprise Linux AS 4.

Thanx
Shantanu
