Re: Custom Kernel problem



Hi All

Thanks a lot. I canged my grub.conf file and eveyhting went on fine. I 
could now log on to the system.

But I have got one more doubt 

mounting other file system :Mount fs ext3 not supported by kernel {FAILED}

I am not sure why this erroe is given while booting.

by doing less /etc/fstab i get this

LABEL =/         /              ext3           defaults            1 1

LABEL =/boot    /boot           ext3           defaults            1  2


Any suggestion are welcomed
