Description of problem: 
I am trying to install redhat 9 on an IBM T22 laptop. I used a redhat 9 boot floppy. It 
boots fine and comes to the boot prompt. I press enter. It says: 
Loading vmlinuz ................. 
Loading initrd.img ............ 
Boot failed: please change disks and press a key to continue. 
I do not have any pcmcia devices (in case that is relevant). Also, I have tried 
options like "noprobe" but it always hangs.
