Mandrake installation...


i just installed Linux Mandrake and it says the following

mount: error 6 mounting ext3 flags Kernel panic: No init found. Try passing init= option to kernel.


any of the experts have some ideas?

Well, I'd give a guess at maybe your install ran into problems with the /etc/fstab file, if you can, plug back in your install CD and enter Rescue mode. Post here the contents of your /etc/fstab file.

If you need help on how to do any of this, by all means, let me/us know.

Cool
