hey guys... I am trying to install linux onto a compact flash card of 128 MB and try and get an embedded system to boot from it..
I used the following link for the same:
As you can see, the bootloader used here is grub. While booting the compact flash,i get the following page with errors:
Making device-mapper control node
scanning logical volumes
reading all physical volumes.This may take a while......
foung volume group "VolGroup00" using metadata type lvm2
Activating logical volumes
2 logical volumes in volume group "VolGroup00" now active
Trying to resume from /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01
No suspend signature on swap, not resuming

Cant find ext3 filesystem on /dev/sdb1
mount:Error mounting /dev/root on /sysroot as ext3:Invalid argument

No fstab.sys, mounting internal defaults
setuproot: error mounting /proc: no such file or directory
setuproot: error mounting /sys: no such file or directory
switching to new root and running init
unmounting old /dev

unmounting old /sys
switchroot: mount failed: no such file or directory
Booting has failed
kernel Panic-not syncing:Attempted to kill init!!
i used the following grub.conf file :
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.21-1.3194.fc7 rw root=/dev/sda1 init=/bin/sh
Since this did not work, i tried using other bootloaders like syslinux and lilo too.. one of the references we used is
Using this method, the system does not even boot. The booting process stalls with the cursor blinking on the screen without any other messages.
Please correct me if i am going wrong with the procedure or if any other modifications need to be done or if any other procedure is to be followed altogether.
Any help will be greatle appreciated. Thank you in advance
