hrm, i don't think so and i just doubled checked. i copied my .config
from my 2.4.14 kernel (which works just fine) to the new kernel tree and
ran "make oldconfig" and answered "m" to everything i could and "n" to
under filesystems both ext3 and ext2 are enabled. under block devices
everything is a module except initrd (and a couple weird things).
but for some reason it can't find my initrd image even though it exists
where menu.lst says it does.
here's the actual error message i get (can't cut and paste so there might
be a typo):
Linux IP multicast router 0.06 plus PIM-SM
RAMDISK: Couldn't find valid RAM disk image starting at 0.
Freeing initrd memory: 3348k freed
request_module[block-major-3]: Root fs not mounted
VFS: Cannot open root device "hda2" or 03:02
Please append a correct "root=" boot options
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 03:02
grub config is identical to my working 2.4.14 config (except of course
pointing to the 2.4.16 initrd and vmlinuz images). my root disk is hda2.
it looks like it can't find the initrd file. with initrd what cannot
be compiled as a module?
