Question RHEL 4 Installing Hugemem kernel


I installed the hugemem kernel when I try to boot I get kernel panic error.

It seems the drives our not finding the processor or vice-versa

This server is running on a SAS in a Raid 1 configuration

I didn't modify the grub.conf file just yet, because I wanted to make sure the kernel would boot properly.

I unpackaged and installed the rpm for the kernel

Then I configured the SCSI:

/sbin/mkinitrd /boot/initrd-2.6.9-11.img 2.6.9-11

Configured Grub:

/etc/grub.conf

grub-install --root-directory=/boot '/dev/sdb1' (I think thats where I went wrong)

Now since I'm not using Lilo I dont have to update the MBr do I?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
