Re: help!

i followed the installation process as far as i know. everything went fine.
i didnt install any other modules as it is a stand alone atm as i cant
afford a network or even a modem. in the penguin installer, i changed the
command line to read "root=dev/sda3" as sda1 is the mac os partition and
sda2 is the swap. the only thing i wasnt sure of is: do you still have to
have the kernel and ram disk? as the quick install guide i have (i'll admit
it is a bit old) didnt tell me what to do in this respect. i hope i have
helped you to find the prob
