Kernel panic: No init found
Good Morning -
We are befuddled and hope someone might be able to give us some direction.
We are unable to now boot, having some months ago successfully installed
GNU/Linux Woody Ver. 3.0r2. We have installed successfully a number of
programs using the apt utilities, including networking, apache, mozilla,
and samba. The last program we were working with was WordPerfect 8 for
Linux in late February. Since then we have been unable to boot and instead
get the error message "Kernel panic: No init found."
Since then we have been working with our rescue floppy disks and with our
CD disks [debian GNU/Linux i386 - 'Woody' 3.0r2], which we had purchased
from www.AboutDebian.com. However, during this past month we have been
unable to boot from our CDROM. The drive is connected by both the power &
data cables and appears to operate properly when the unit is powered-up
[the green light flashes].
We are operating the following:
VA Linux 2230 P3 2U FullOn 2x2 3x9G SCSI 650 MHz Server
IDE ATAPI CD-540E 40X 128 kb cache
We have searched Google & other sites for assistance but to no avail.
Can someone give us some direction on this! Thank you.
