I have encountered a new problem with having 3 distros installed on one machine: my MDK10.0 recognizes my two harddisks as hde and hdf, while the Slack and Fedora distros name them hda and hdb. Now the LILO bootloader is installed by MDK and that's why all the partitions are named by MDK standards. So here is my /etc/lilo.conf:
# File generated by DrakX/drakboot
# WARNING: do not forget to run lilo after modifying this file
Now, when I try to boot either Fedora or Slack I get kernel panic and following output:
kmod: failed to exec /sbin/modprobe -s -k block-major-33, errno=2
VFS: Cannot open root device "2107" or 21:07
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 21:07
I have tried to change root=/dev/hda6, but I still got the same message.
