    SubjectRe: Kernel Panic at Boot
    Hi All,

    Please ignore my previous mail.

    I figured out the cause and solution of the problem (I
    had to compile the scsi controller driver into the
    kernel, rather than having it as a module -- which is
    the default).. sorry for that junk mail..
