Hi all,

I am soo close. I have have made my custom kernel from a DIFFERENT machine,
I have hte USB booting, I have 3  partitions, 1-fat12, 2 - ext3, 3 is swap.
on booting it says:

VFS cannot open root device NULL please append root=

I tried root=/dev/sda2 and still nothing.

Is there something about building a kernel on one machine and then 
taking that
to another machine with different disk structure and it not booting???
What do you do in that case?

I think - hope - this is my last step to get past...
