first of all i want to mention that i'm not very experienced with linux.
my problem is as follows:
i boot from cd and setup works fine. it's just very slow... especially the process of "making swap partition" and copying files. that needs very long time, but maybe that's normal^^
also my hard drives are detected and all seems to work fine, but when it comes to boot my brand new installed vectorlinux i get an error.
when booting from lilo the standard decision (gui for desktop), and even under tui, it starts booting until i can see following lines:
TuxOnIce: Resume= parameter is empty. Hibernating will be disabled.
VFS: Cannot open root device "1601" or unknown-block(22,1)
Please append a correct "root=" boot option; here are the available partitions:
0340 4194302 hdb driver: ide-cdrom
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(22,1)
nothing works anymore. if i boot with the boot-option "184.108.40.206" all seems to work fine. vectorlinux starts and i can log in.
has anyone an idea how to solve that problem?
