Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block


hi,

i have a ibm box and had a as4 install for testing purpose.
however, when i decided to copy files on a large scale (>=1gb) it will ocassionally hang. As such i had decided to reinstall the whole machine and after reinserting the disk, i had "Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(104,3).

May I know why is that so? and how do i resolve it and reinstall my as4?

thanks.

Looks like your root filesystem is configure as a module. Either that or the HDD modules aren't loading.
