Maybe this will help you if your not allready aware of it.

The error message you getting is the result of not hard coding support for your root partition (as apposed to being modular)

I understand what you are saying about hard coded vs modular (ie Y, M, N). What I don't get is what I am supposed to hard code.

Here are some snippets from my .config
Code:
# SCSI low-level drivers
#
# CONFIG_BLK_DEV_3W_XXXX_RAID is not set
# CONFIG_SCSI_7000FASST is not set
# CONFIG_SCSI_ACARD is not set
# CONFIG_SCSI_AHA152X is not set
# CONFIG_SCSI_AHA1542 is not set
# CONFIG_SCSI_AACRAID is not set
# CONFIG_SCSI_AIC7XXX is not set
# CONFIG_SCSI_AIC7XXX_OLD is not set
# CONFIG_SCSI_AIC79XX is not set
# CONFIG_SCSI_ADVANSYS is not set
# CONFIG_SCSI_IN2000 is not set
# CONFIG_SCSI_MEGARAID is not set
CONFIG_SCSI_SATA=y

...

#
# File systems
#
CONFIG_EXT2_FS=y
# CONFIG_EXT2_FS_XATTR is not set
CONFIG_EXT3_FS=y
# CONFIG_EXT3_FS_XATTR is not set
CONFIG_JBD=y
# CONFIG_JBD_DEBUG is not set
CONFIG_REISERFS_FS=y
# CONFIG_REISERFS_CHECK is not set
# CONFIG_REISERFS_PROC_INFO is not set
# CONFIG_JFS_FS is not set

# CONFIG_MINIX_FS is not set
# CONFIG_ROMFS_FS is not set
# CONFIG_QUOTA is not set
# CONFIG_AUTOFS_FS is not set
CONFIG_AUTOFS4_FS=y
and here is my fstab

Code:
/dev/sda4        swap             swap        defaults         0   0
/dev/sda5        /                ext3        defaults         1   1
/dev/sda1        /boot            ext3        defaults         1   1
/dev/sda2        /home            reiserfs    defaults         1   0
/dev/cdrom       /mnt/cdrom       auto        users,ro         0   0
/dev/fd0         /mnt/floppy      auto        noauto,owner     0   0
/dev/sdb1        /mnt/usb1        auto        users            0   0
/dev/sdc1        /mnt/usb2        auto        users            0   0
devpts           /dev/pts         devpts      gid=5,mode=620   0   0
proc             /proc            proc        defaults         0   0
and lilo.conf

Code:
# Linux bootable partition config begins
image = /boot/vmlinuz
  root = /dev/sda5
  label = Slackware-2.6.0
  read-only # Non-UMSDOS filesystems should be mounted read-only for checking
# Linux bootable partition config ends
# Old bootable image config begins
image = /boot/vmlinuz.old
  root = /dev/sda5
  label = Slackware-old
  read-only
# Old bootable image config ends
Is there something I am missing?

I think you might need to turn on a few options in
Device Drivers-->SCSI Device Support-->SCSI Low Level Drivers

Try to find the options specific to your hardware, but if you're not sure, post your hardware specs. The kernel config to my generic Live CD kernel looks like this:
Code:
#
# SCSI low-level drivers
#
CONFIG_ISCSI_TCP=m
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_3W_XXXX_RAID=y
CONFIG_SCSI_3W_9XXX=y
CONFIG_SCSI_7000FASST=y

CONFIG_AIC7XXX_RESET_DELAY_MS=15000
# CONFIG_AIC7XXX_DEBUG_ENABLE is not set
CONFIG_AIC7XXX_DEBUG_MASK=0
# CONFIG_AIC7XXX_REG_PRETTY_PRINT is not set
CONFIG_SCSI_AIC7XXX_OLD=m
CONFIG_SCSI_AIC79XX=y
CONFIG_AIC79XX_CMDS_PER_DEVICE=4

CONFIG_SCSI_U14_34F_MAX_TAGS=8
CONFIG_SCSI_ULTRASTOR=m
CONFIG_SCSI_NSP32=y
CONFIG_SCSI_DEBUG=m
But this is for a generic kernel.

I took your advise and added every sata option I could. Low and behold it worked, so I am now running my new kernel with only a few small issues (such as sound and wireless). I ran the rc.bluetooth script and it executed without any errors. So now all I have to do is finished the tutorial by installing kdebluetooth, and figure out exactly which sata options I really need (not to mention fix my other problems).

Thanks for all your help with the bluetooth, and my first sucessfull kernel install.

Peace

I'm glad you got it working!

For the 2.6 kernel to get along with Slackware, you need to uninstall the alsa-driver package, then enable sound support, alsa, and the driver for your card, all as modules. Then run 'alsaconf', 'alsamixer', 'alsactl store'.

Wireless depends on the hardware so you will have to do a bit of searching. I have a Atheros wifi card so I had to go download the madwifi driver.
