Making new kernel
I decided to try openMosix. I downloaded a plain old kernel from kernel.org (version 2.4.20 should you care). I then patched the kernel with the patch distributed from openmosix.sf.net. I make a script that recompiles my kernel for me.
The kernel, using my old config, compiled fine. I made sure to run mkinitd. When I try to boot the new kernel, problems arise.....I get an error at the tail end of the boot saying "cannot find rootfs on "/" or "hd0:0"
Now, the other 2 kernels I have boot fine. All 3 have a line that say root(hd0:0), so I don't think that's it. BUT, I remembered something....my boot partition is on hda1, while the root FS is on hdb1. I thought that may have soemthing to do with this, so I changed the openmosix kernel to read "root(hd1:0)" with no luck. Is there a kernel option I overlooked? What are some possible reasons that it cannot boot my root FS? Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
