Subjectcant build ramdisk :-(


i followed the instructions in linux/Documentation/ramdisk.txt:

dd if=linux/arch/i386/boot/zImage of=/dev/fd0
rdev /dev/fd0 /dev/fd0
rdev -r /dev/fd0 49152

but when I boot with this disk, the kernel would say:

VFS: insert root floppy and press ENTER .... I do so
VFS: mounted root [ext2fs] readonly (I'm not in front of the
machine right now)

shouldnt the first message read something like "VFS: insert ramdisk floppy" ?

kernel is 2.0.10

I also tried to install lilo on the bootdisk (install=/mnt/boot/boot.b,
append="prompt_ramdisk=1" or similar), but all lilo does is print either
"LI" or "LIL". according to the faq, I have problems with my SCSI system,
which is not true, since this particular computer doesn't have a SCSI
adapter at all... and yes, this *IS* lilo.19.tar.gz which I just downloaded
an hour ago.
