I was interested in a quadruple (4) boot between Windows 98, Windows XP, Redhat 9.0, and Mandrake9.2.
I am using System Commander, which is a very good boot manager. I installed Redhat 9.0, using Grub on the boot partition (not the mbr)...it booted fine. Then I installed Mandrake9.2 on a different partition using LILO on a separate boot partition. Both Redhat and Mandrake are sharing a swap partition.
And now When I boot up redhat, I get the Grup selection menu...I choose my kernel, and attempts to boot, but then I get the error "Kernel Panic: No Init Found. Try passing init=option to kernel."
I am wondering, am I even installing the right way. Am I supposed to install the bootloaders on two seperate boot partitions?
I have Grub and LILO as my two different boot loaders....should I use the same one?
I am concerned with why this happend in the first place. Could Mandrake's boot loader be interfering with Redhats. I will have to troubleshoot the issue. I am having so many problems I have 8 partitions on my hard drive! and perhaps I cannot install LILO above the 1024 cylinder?
