Comment 1 Matt Wilson 2001-07-16 09:30:56 EDT
it looks like your system is set up to mount / by label (LABEL=/), but there was
no partition found that has the '/' label.  Can your system boot normally right
Comment 2 Steve Jones 2001-07-16 15:15:11 EDT
Yes it boots normally, although I haven't figured out how to mount the eth0 or 
the cd-rom drive yet...
Comment 3 Brent Fox 2001-07-23 11:54:33 EDT
Can you provide more information about how to reproduce the original crash that
you saw?
Comment 4 Brent Fox 2001-08-03 10:44:23 EDT
Closing due to inactivity. Please reopen if you have more information.
