Sorry, the machine is an 030 50mhz AMiga, it has 16mb of ram and the main
partition for the Linux is 350 and the swap is 30mb.

I have sent the parse amiboot5.2 -k linuxamiga root=/dev/sda6 ro video=pal

The drive is correct, as it found the same and prep'd it for installlation.

Everything had worked in the install. But is just refuses to Boot..

The message it gives is.

/Partition check/

*lists all partitions correctly*

/VFS: cannot open root device 08:06/

/KERNEL PANIC: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 08:06/

Hope this helps...
