Description Cindy Dale 2000-06-21 18:41:02 EDT
We've had problems using mkinitrd to make initial ram disk images since we
installed 6.2.  The only kernel we have been able to get to boot correctly
since this version came out is 2.2.14-12.  The latest one we tried to
install was 2.2.16-3.  It always just gives a kernel panic and 'unable to
open inital console'

This happens on 4 of the same machines.  Dale Lovelace has access to these
machines if someone needs to reproduce the problem.
