here is my fstab:
/dev/hdc1 /boot ext2 defaults,noatime 1 2
/dev/hdc2 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/hdc3 / ext3 noatime 0 1
/dev/cdroms/cdrom0 /mnt/cdrom auto user 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /dev/shm /tmpfs defaults 0 0
none /proc/openprom openpromfs defaults 0 0
none /proc/bus/usb usbfs defaults 0 0
here is my grub.conf:
# Partition where the kernel image (or operating system) is located
kernel /linux-2.4.27 root=/dev/hdc3
cannot boot, invalid "root="
the kernel name is correct because i tried a different kernel name and it said "file not found" instead of "invalid root="
does my fstab and grub seem to match up? did i put all the lines correctly on grub? please remember i am using "hdc" not "hda" is there something i did wrong in grub?
i boot from gentoo livecd and i'm very new, still difficult for me to mount the BOOT partition and edit grub.conf (but i think i remember how to do this) also my fstab is one from the cd, not from the hard drive. i don't know how to edit the fstab from the hard drive...
this has taken me 5 days and i'm very tired and frustrated with linux i am hoping this is a simple sollution... thanks for reading into my problem.
