Kernel panic while PXE booting RH


Hello,

I am trying to PXE boot RHES ver 4. I am using the vmlinuz-2.6.9-22.EL kernel found in an installation of RHES ver 4, and I am making the initrd file preloading the module sk98lin, which is the driver for the Marvell Yukon network chip through which I am trying to boot. (The latest Marvell Yukon driver will not uncompress, and anyway I read that it works only for kernels 2.6.20 and above, for earlier ones, I should use the older sk98lin driver).

OK, the DHCP server assigns the IP address to the Yukon interface, I do get the vmlinuz and initrd files through TFTP, so far so good. Then I get Kernel Panic, without any obvious previous indications of trouble. Here are the last two lines:


device-mapper: 4.4.0-ioctl (2005-01-12) initialised: dm-devel@redhat.com
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!


Anybody knows what the problem could be?

Thank you,

Mark Galeck
