Re: 2.1 Newbie boot bummer

No such luck this time, though. I built a 2.1.42 kernel (with SMP
removed from the Makefile), updated all the utilities like the web page
said to (except modules, evidently you need to be running the kernel
first), and told it to boot.

Well, I did that, too (except I didn't get the new utilities), and when I
tried to do a boot, it can't mount my root, with a "can't mount dev 03:08"
(which is my IDE drive's root partition).

Is there any reason I can't access my HD anymore? I'm sure I made both the
ext2fs fs a "Y" choice. Have the major numbers changed from 2.0.30 to 2.1.42?
