DEC Alpha SX164-want to install Redhat6.0
-Created MILO disk, works and type:
MILO>boot fd0:sx164.gz root=/dev/fd0 load_ramdisk=1
-This seems to work, it prompts for the ramdisk, i insert.
begins to load until eventually, it gives an error.
"Kernel Panic:VFS:Unable to mount root fs on 01:00"
I"m following this procedure through the HOWTO's.
I've tried two different IDE drives, a SCSI drive.
The only thing i'm unsure of is the partitioning.
since i have to use the Alpha BIOS in order to create partitions and format, how am i supposed to do it?
Please, no theory. An answer from someone that has successfully installed Linux on a DEC Alpha SX164 or similar machine. No dual booting with NT, just LInux onto a blank drive.
