I just installed linux redhat 7.1 on my IBM thinkpad laptop. I am very new to linux and hoping to learn it as time goes by. Today I came across this error message when I try to boot into linux from a boot floppy:
"kernel panic:VFS:unable to mount root fs on 07:01"
I have win98se and win2000pro on one partition and installed linux on the other. I think I was booting from the linux boot manager, which gave me the option of booting to linux and dos which takes me to the windows boot option. For some reason I don't get the option for linux and my pc goes straight into booting windows.
Please advice me as to how i can solve this problem.
