Kernel Panic Kernel Panic!!!
I'm making a boot floppy. I've complied the kernel and put it in one floppy. I then put the root file system in the second floppy.
On trying to boot from it, the first floppy loads the kernel and asks for the second floppy.
When I insert the second floppy, it gives me the message
'KERNEL PANIC: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 02:00'
The website tldp.org/HOWTO/Bootdisk-HOWTO tells me some things, but in vain.
1. How do I check if the device 02:00 exists. I couldn't understand how to read the /usr/src/linux/Documentation/devices.txt file.
2. I have done rdev -r on /mnt/floppy/bzImage
3. I have added the standard IDE floppy drive support in my kernel.
4. I have added the ramdisk support (though i've excluded initrd), and added ext2 fs support built-in. I've got no modules.
Could anybody tell me in easy language what's the problem?
