Description Enrico Scholz 2001-01-15 10:07:08 EST
When doing a LILO-less installation, the /boot/initrd-... image won't be
created. Because the IDE driver was not compiled into the kernel by
default, the boot-process needs such an image; else it will fail with

| VFS: Cannot open root device "341" or 03:41
| Please append a correct "root=" boot option
| Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on "03:41"
Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2001-01-15 19:29:30 EST
IDE driver is now being built into the kernel.
