Angry W2K and RH72 - kernel panic, need help with booting ...

I am having a problem attempting to run W2K and RH72. Whenever I try to boot linux from the W2K boot loader, the machine just reboots itself. Upon attempting to boot from a floppy I receive the following ...

EXT2-fs: unable to read superblock
isofs_read_super: bread failed, dev=09.02, iso_blknum=16, block=32
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 09.02,

Any ideas? Please help ...

Mildly frustrated,

don't use the windows boot loader, it just doesn't work. Use GRUB or LILO instead. I've installed GRUB in the MBR and I can dual boot WinXP and RH7.2 without any problem.
