    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.
