installing Etch to a USB drive
I am trying to install amd64 Etch using the beta 1 release installer
onto an 80Gig USB 2.0 Hard Drive. It goes pretty well, the drive is
picked up at /dev/sda and installs happilly.
Unfortunately it won't boot, and the kernel prints this message:
/sbin/init: 432: cannot open dev/console: No such file
Kernel panic - not syncing: attempted to kill init!
I don't know what's wrong. The computer can boot USB drives. But i'm
booting using grub on a floppy to load the kernel. Could it be that it
can't mount the filesystems properly?
