Hi Tobias,

The install did move very smoothly, however I cannot boot the machine.
A kernel panic occurs like this:

"kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: unable to mount root fs on unknown-lock(8,1)"

From other posts in the forums this seems to mean that the system does not have the kernel
modules to support my scsi card and boot from the scsi disc.

I attempted to follow some advice you gave in the forum to build an initrd image for my system after using the 2.91 disc as a rescue disc, without much success. Initially I could mount and then chroot into my scsi disc root partition, however I could not produce an initrd disc image. mkinitrd does not seem to be available. It seems we use yaird for this now, however if I chroot into my root partition and try to make the initrd image, yaird complains that it can't open files
in the proc directory.

"yaird error: cant open /proc/bus/input/devices (fatal)"

If I just mount the scsi disc partition and try to build the initrd from the 2.91 cd's file system it
complains that the mount point for my scsi disc is not in the fstab.

"yaird error: mount point not in fstab: . (fatal)"

Any thoughts??
