Linux newbie, tried to upgrade the kernal to the 2.4 version that comes with the cds, guess i missed a direction somewhere, but i got a real nice message:
Kernel Panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 3a:05\
Guess it's time to reinstall. Only took 7 hours last time on this pos system i'm playing with. Shawn.

And before an upgrade always use partimage or mondorestore to back up the partition you are playing with and all you do then is just restore what you backed up.


Ouch! Remember to keep the usefull kernel in place next to the new one (and make sure it'll show up in the boot menu) so that you can still boot into debian even if the new kernel has problems
