Problems With Booting RH 9.0


When I boot my system, it boots up to this screen:

Mounting proc Filesystem: [OK]

Mounting initrid [OK]

Configuring Kernel Parameters [OK]

We'lll, nothing happens after this it just stops, is there anything I can do about this help on this topic would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

MAJJACK

You can use your Redhat install cd as a rescue disk. Just type "linux rescue" at the prompt and it will mount your linux partition for you on /mnt. Then, assuming that your kernel version is 2.4.20-8, you can insert a blank floppy and do this:

Code:
cd /mnt
chroot .
/sbin/mkbootdisk 2.4.20-8
exit
exit
Hopefully that floppy will boot you system.

That's nice, I thought it was hanging after " Configuring Kernel Parameters [OK]"
