Re: Kernel panic: no init found.



Whne you first get the installer splash screen, enter some random text
and hit enter.  It'll say it doesn't like that command and ask you
again.  Enter 

linux

or 

linux text

and it should work.  There's a syslinux bug that sounds like it's bitten
you.  Apparently entering some gibberish causes it to restart the
installer correctly.
