That sounds like you don't have the system root path specified correctly
on the kernel line.
e.g. kernel /vm........ ro root=LABEL=/
Where it's got "root=" the bit after it has to point to where / is found
on your drives (can be specified via a *unique* label, or device).
(This box runs FC5, my others run FC4 & FC6, in case that's
important to the thread.)
Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
