i recently install debian sid on my machine...however i have kernel 2.2.20(too old) and so i decided to give 2.6.1 a shot(BTW i have successfully compiled 2.4.23 before).
i went through the steps described here
which basically says to do a make xconfig,make bzImage,make modules and make modules_install.
i went through all these steps just fine but after editing my lilo.conf file and rebooting i get the following error(Well this is only an extract since i cannot copy down that error statement):
VFS:Cannot open root device "342" or unknown-block(3,66)
Please append a corect "root=" boot option
Kernel Panic:VFS:Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(3,66)
my lilo.conf file is:
# global options:
#menu-title=" John's Computer "
# bootable kernel images:
this is a file i created...the file that came with the debian install is too long so i will put it up on my website if neone is interested
plz let me know what i can do about this.
