Compaq Presario V2000 crashes during boot when trying to re-mount HD as r/w


Hey I've had this laptop for awhile now and can not seem to get Slackware up and running. Install always goes great but when I boot it up it always crashes when trying to remount the Hard Drive as r/w. I even tried the lilo parameter read-only. Didn't help I've even tried installing lilo to MBR and Superblock. Any suggestions?

I presume you boot first time on the huge kernel? If not do, until you make a ramdisk or recompile the kernel.

Next, what does it complain about? File system errors? hard disk errors? file access errors? mount errors? Permissions? or does the thing just crash?
