Slack 8.1 problem
I am attempting to install slackware 8.1 on my scsi system, intel l440gx+ dual pentium III 600mhz system. I have 2 IBM 18gb scsi harddrives as well. I've attempted to use the kernels that came on the cd's scsi.s, scsi2.s adaptec.s which have all failed giving different errors. I did a little searching and found that *I think* I should be using the aic7xxx.s kernel. after loading up the floppy it recognizes the scsi channels (which none of the other kernels do) and then recognizes the hard drive(s) (I've attempted difference configurations, removing hdd's reversing order etc.). It shows the partitions, then I get:
VFS: Cannot open root device 03:41
Kernel panic: Unable to mount root fs on 03:41.
This happens on both hard drives. I know the harddrives are ok, windows will install, and so will redhat.
I don't know for sure that I am even using the correct bootdisk image. If anyone has any idea about what is going on, or how I can get this to work, it would be greatly appreciated.
