Thank you for your reply.
Did you mean as follows?
localhost login:root
password:the password I created earlier for root

If yes, then I tried that one as well but didn't really work.

Well that is what I meant and even in Linux 2007 edition Bible that is what it says to do so it is well beyond my limited knowledge of Linux. Sorry I could not be of more help.

That's correct so far. Double check for common mistakes, such as caps-lock is on, and verify the spelling of the password. ie: Are you sure that's what you typed for the root password when you were prompted earlier

Failing that, you could always boot into single-user mode and reset the password for root...

after compiling linuk kernel 2.6.18.1 fedora 6, basically after running the command 'make' instead of 'make dep', its giving me the following error:

make[3]:*** No rule to make target 'net/ipv4/netfilter/ipt_tos.c' needed by 'net/ipv4/netfilter/ipt_tos.0'. stop.
make[2]:***[net/ipv4/netfilter] Error 2
make[1]:***[net/ipv4] Error 2
make:***[net] Error 2


Could any body please give me suggestion. Eagerly awaiting your reply as I am stuck at this point and can't proceed any further. Solicit your cooperation.
My system spec:
Dell laptop,
RAM 1 GB, I installed linux in 10 GB partition without swap partition. Processor P4 Centrino core 2 Duo.

You should post this in another thread and in another section of the forum. This has nothing to do with the root partition for fedora. I am saying that because almost nobody who knows how to compile a kernel is going to see your problem here...

About the kernel now. Did you follow the procedure for 2.6 kernels? (i.e. make menuconfig, make, etc...) I see you are mentioning "make dep" which was used in 2.4 kernels only...

Does your kernel have any applied patches? Where did you get it from? Why aren't you trying to build a vanilla 2.6.22.1 kernel? (i.e. the latest stable)

Make the problem more clear and preferably post it all in a different forum section, with a new topic, and post a link to the new thread here.

Kindly help me out with installation of fedora , i already have vista on laptop. I have partitions C (40 gb), D(97 gb), E (10 gb). I shrinked d volume of D (20 gb) and partitioned it. Then i loaded fedora on it. It was successfully running on it butvista wasn't as it showed " Boot mngr Missing" . What was wrong with that? What should i do?
