Thank you for trying to help me sort this out. I have just installed linux
mandriva 2006 the free edition. and i am a total nube at linux. ive just
downloaded and installed it. the installation went good with no erros or
anything. have made the boot in the first boot sector of the '/' root. im sorry
if what i am talking about sounds weird but it's what happned. the boot lowader
loads then i choose 'linux' then I get an error when i try to load linux and the
pivotroot: pivot_roor(/sysroot,/sysroot/initrd) failoed: 2
unmount /initrd/ sys failed: 2
unmount /initrd/ proc failed:2
freeing unused kernel memory: 200k freed
kernel panic:no init fouind. tryinh passing init=option to kernel.
I dont know if i messed it!. while partetioning i have made it 'auto' the
installation determined the paretitiong thing for me and it formated my 40GB IDe
