I have downloaded the sarge hd-media files and have an install.bat that
goes like this:
c:\linux\loadlin vmlinuz root=/dev/ram0 devfs=mount,dall
Looking at the documentation for loadlin, I think the "root=/dev/ram0"
parameter may be wrong, although the documentation is not completely
Could you try with just /dev/ram0?
Could you also try with /dev/ram and /dev/rd/0 (both with root= and
without I guess to make sure)?
It reads the kernel and the initrd just fine but then crashes when
trying to mount the root fs on 01:00
I've also tried 2.6 kernel but I get an error telling me that init
isn't defined and that I should add an init= line to the loader...
c:\linux\loadlin 2.6/vmlinuz root=/dev/ram0 devfs=mount,dall
