I had a similar problem with kernel panics. My problem was that lilo hadn't been configured to load my new kernel image so it tried to load a 2.2.4 image. Unfortunately I was using ext3, which was unsupported by 2.2.4 so I couldn't boot until I used another machine to make a barebones bootdisk of 2.4.18 and fix the problem. So if you use ext3 filesystems make sure your kernel will support them.

Not to bash Windows, not like I'd ever do that, but I'm not certain rawrite will work properly from an XP machine. Remember, MS is now in a silent guerilla war with Linux to make certain everything looks cool for the DOJ and Linux dies. If you've got a 98 or Me or eek, a 95 box around, it should work from there.

Luck,

The CD is probably fine, I've been reading up on the bootable image sections of CDs and the new things that most Linux distros have moved to, even slackware, has issues with very quick CDroms, and certain BIOSs, and sometimes 800Mb CDs... its just a jungle out there really. If you can read the data from machine, then its most likely fine, but if you had a linux box around, and were able to check the image's md5sum, that would be pretty much brilliant.

Cheers,

Run the md5sum program on the file, and then compare it to these:

a91011f1c6b5f331d120d33ee5898d95 valhalla-i386-disc1.iso
422948492b984060b21923d11febb422 valhalla-i386-disc2.iso
505a73bac591882c14c80bfe452cd757 valhalla-i386-disc3.iso
9fc872b4dca927dfd86b80cba4da4814 valhalla-SRPMS-disc1.iso
88f1e7b2187402e29fe1377a1209f42b valhalla-SRPMS-disc2.iso

If the number matches, the download was clean.

Cheers,

I found a solution (at least for me)

I had the next messages when installing RedHat 7.2

EXT2-fs: unable to read superblock
Kernel Panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 09:02

After try a lot, I found Tht it worked when I enter in the set up of the computer and selected the optimal settings, and then changing only the primary boot device to CD. I seems to be a board setting problem, so you can try changing some options on your own computer

Hope this works
