Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have the same problem(I upgraded to 2.6.13)
but I'm pretty sure that I included my ide and filesystem statically(not modules) (I already compiled my own kernel before), and I'm also sure that there is nothing wrong about my lilo.conf because "make install" does that automatically(I also checked my self)
I got the same problem here, my SuSE 9.2 can't boot. I understand that I must reach config file but I can not even reach my HD with external tools, such as this famous Ultimate Boot CD which includes a live Linux too. The hda1 (swap) and hda2 (reiserfs) are seen in the table of Qtparted (a GUI tool for handling partitions) but hell, no way to change anyting on them, formatting doesn't work either. The booting stops with the error message: hda: read-initr: uncorrectable error: LBA 2020108 This sector is in the hda2 partition that includes SuSE 9.2. Any workaround for that?
I am having same problem after I upgraded my Ubuntu.
Ubuntu is installed as application on my XP.
Normal Ubuntu gives me error "[ 0.785649] kernel panic - not syncing : VFS: unable to mount root FS on unknown-block(8,2)"
Safe/Recovering boot option gives me details traceback..
Pid :1 comm: swapper not tainted 2.6.32-27-generic#
Please need a help..
