I'm trying to learn how to boot the 4.2.0 server with a grub boot disk
and it only partially boots.
Here is what i type:
GRUB> root (hd0,0)              yes its on /dev/hda1
GRUB> kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.9-1.681_FC3smp ro root=/dev/hda1
GRUB> boot
The kernel loads up to selinux with a message about 10 lines before
stating that it can't open a console.
In menu.lst, the kernel line reads this:
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.9-1.681_FC3smp ro root=LABEL=/1
What is this root=LABEL=/1 option? what does it mean?
P.S.: i did try this option in grub interactive and the kernel crashes,
it only work in the menu.lst file.
