its IDE HDD only.
the ERROR says to append a correct "root=" boot option, so i tried to give
the kernel argument while booting as ,
: linux root=/dev/hdc
because my CD ROM was a secondary Master. it passed that line ,but after
that it throws a different error.
No init found try passing init= option to kernel.
please guide me to find out where the problem is. thanks in advance.
