very close, stumped though... (was moving floppy system to hard drive)
Since my last message, I am actually able to boot up, in single
user mode, if I specify "rescue single" at the lilo prompt. So
I think I am getting closer. Now I am stumped, df says the root file
system is "/dev/ram" but appears to actually be my 17 Meg hard
I (re)read the Bootdisk-HOWTO, but can't see anything else that is
in the picture that is causing this confusion. I tried setting the
ramdisk size to 0 and the boot device as /dev/hda7 with both "rdev"
and in the lilo.conf file...
At bootup, init says:
VFS: Mounted toot (ext2 filesystem) readonly
INIT: version 2.76 booting
proc on /proc type proc (rw)
Does anyone have any idea what I am missing to get the root file
system set correctly as /dev/hda7 ?
relevant lilo.conf entries are:
