'Can't open initial console', 'Kernel panic: Free list corrupted'
I've put together an old 486 from bits, and am trying to install Debian
(hamm) on it.
If I use the boot diskette (doesn't support CD bootup), the bootup stops
with 'Can't open initial console', and if I try the rescue disk, it just
Kernel panic: Free list corrupted'.
So - how can I boot this thing up? What do those messages mean in
practical terms and what can I do about it?
