This is the first problem I've had with redhat in a very long time.
I'm installing rh8 on a system that was running rh7 with no problem for
three years.
I wiped the drive and installed rh8 but it won't boot.
Here's the layout.
/dev/hda1 /boot
/dev/hda2 /


title Red Hat Linux (2.4.18-14)
	root (hd0,0)
	kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18-14 ro root=LABEL=/
	initrd /initrd-2.4.18-14.img

Filesystem is set for ext3 but when the system boots this is what I get.

root (hd0,0)
 Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
Kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18-14 ro root=LABEL=/
 [Linux-bzImage, setup=0x1400, size=0x11154a]

I've tried chaging the BIOS around and have wipe the drive with a winblow
boot disk and fdisk /mbr still nothing

I need this system up ASAP



www.centos.org as RH8 and 9 are no longer supported. Your best bet is to download CentOS and go from there, read up on it and see what it is....it's Enterprise RH3 without support, though you could get an RHCE to support it if needed, and they have their own commercial support.

I use it often.
