Re: [vox-tech] LUGOD Newbie Seeks Help

Believe it or not, I actually considered this option.  Or so I thought.  I 
went through with the vmlinuz root=/dev/hdax command through all six 
partitions on my drive, even knowing full well that hda6 was nothing but a 
VFAT partition which is shared with my Win2K partition.  But hope springs 

My thought at this point is that the kernel which is loaded when I typed 
vmlinuz... from the boot: prompt is not the kernel I used before, or 
something is preventing it from loading all of the modules that are needed...

"The kernel which can be loaded is not the true kernel..."
