Description Scott Dunbar 2000-11-25 18:48:06 EST
I had Solaris x86 (Solaris 8) and RH 6.1 installed.  Upgraded to RH 7 and
now, during boot I get:

Invalid session number or type of track
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 03:07

If I change the partition types of the Solaris x86 partitions to something
besides 0x82 (tried 0xA1), Linux boots fine.  I assume that Linux is trying
to use the Solaris x86 partitions, even though /etc/fstab has no mention of

System is a Dell PII 450Mhz with 128Mb RAM.  Solaris is over the default
IDE disk and a SCSI disk, using an Adaptec 2940W controller.  Linux is only
on the IDE disk.  Win98 is also on the IDE disk.
