could you try adding "no-hlt" or "no_hlt" to the syslinux line like:
"linux no-hlt" ?
Comment 2 Nathan L 2001-05-02 10:40:03 EDT
I have tried linux no-hlt with no luck.  still during "running /sbin/loader" 
comes up with all errors as per last time. I'm getting my hands on redhat 7.1 
tomorrow and see if same problem, would like to have linux working today 
though. thankz for your help so far.
