Talking First boot error for a poor new Linux guy...

Hi there,

Waooo... finally decided to use forum and more... forum for Linux.
So do not lugh too loud 'cause I'm speaking about RedHat 6.1.
I take the problem from the source so I am starting low.

Not so low asa I am trying to install it on a disk where WinME (booouuuuoouuuu!) is installed. And of course, first 1024 cylinders are used. So forget LILO and MBR.

Installation works pretty fine (in fact it works 8 times fine!!).

When I try to boot for first time with a boot disk created during instal I recieve that:
Error 0x10

I have created a new boot disk with ramwrite from DOS session.
Boot with it returns:
Kernel Panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 03:01

More information that could help.
I am using a multi boot application that detect Linux. But whn I start it, I have to setup my network card and then give an URL for second part of install..... strange as evrything come from a CDROM gives with an installation manual. It is shown as AFPLinux (or something like that :-)

Regarding info from web.. it might be due to Network card.

So if you have any idea any solution (except removing Win partition) let me know... Hope I would be helpfull for you next time

(speaking french + english)
