I think you need to load scsi drivers first (anaconda expert mode), then use the following path for your USB storage device:
Code:
/dev/sda1

thanks for advice loony. i did the expert mode thing, but without code that u left. where does this code go anyway? and it fired up the anaconda and finished instalation with no problems.

but now i cant start RedHat. it shows the black screen (after GRUB)
and so very horrible last line:
" kernel panic: cant find init. try passing init = option to kernel" .

how do i pass that option and from where and what option do i pass
i appreciate any help
