Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!
I tried to change root to /dev/sda5 which is my Centos /boot but even then I cant boot.
@Sasha, the typo is correct I checked several times.
Ubuntu was my main os till now and I don't remember if I meddle with bootloader during installation. Which means it must have gone into MBR. Whereas for Cent, I had selected to install bootloader on...err what? I don't remember now. :-(
Hmm...as much as I can remember, I had to create a seperate /boot with ext3 thanks to F11-Preview. Then I decided to try CentOS and during Cent install I selected swap, seperate /boot on /dev/sda5 and / on /dev/sda8. I did not install grub on MBR, thats for sure. But I can't remember whether I choose to install on root partition or chose not to install grub. How to find out?
Btw, is there an option of "configfile ...", like it is in grub?
@adamben, I tried your suggestion. It does not help.
Fed up and not sure if this is a lilo problem (grub used to boot Centos fine), I installed grub. But when I do grub-install it complains about not being able to read stage1 properly. Don't know what to do. Am thinking of reinstalling Ubuntu's grub on MBR.
P.S: Strangely, on my desktop, Debian is not able to boot Slackware 13(it used to boot Slack 12.1 though). :-(
