Description Michal Jaegermann 2002-03-17 19:57:13 EST
Description of Problem:

After an installation is done, and even /boot/initrd-2.4.9-24.img
was written, one has rather slim chances to boot this sparkling new
installation as in /etc/aboot.conf one gets the following:

0:1/vmlinuz-2.4.9-24 root=/dev/hda3 console=tty

and modules required to mount ext3 type / are only on a ramdisk
which is not mentioned anywhere on this line.

This independent on the fact that a Red Hat supplied kernel does
not need to even try to boot my machine for other reasons.
