isolinux.cfg what´s wrong here?


Okay, when I´m trying to boot I get an errormessage "isolinux, unknown keyword in config file", and the system halts. I have no idea what is wrong, and I use the file that came with topologilinux, so I thought it should work. Could someone please read thru the isolinux.cfg code I posted and tell me where this "unknown keyword" is and what I have to change so it works? thx.

Your default line is the problem. It should be a simple pointer to a label instead of a full kernel load routine.

Example:

default test

label test
kernel /topologilinux/kernel/bzImage
append initrd=/topologilinux/files/initrd.gz vga=773 root=/dev/ram0 init=/linuxrc rw

Would load the same settings as what you are currently trying to accomplish. The kernel & append lines can be identical for each label but each label needs to be unique.
