Subject: Re: attempting to boot with loadlin

Ok, try adding this, copy/move loadlin into c:\lfs with lfskernel, then add
these lines to the start of the .bat file

cd c:\lfs

To make sure the current directory is c:\lfs before trying to load the
kernel and then..

loadlin lfskernel ro root=/dev/hdc7 hdd=ide-scsi

I'm not quite sure what the -v was for, haven't used loadlin for years

Still no go. I turned echo on and it is getting to the correct directory and starting loadlin, but loadlin is not seeing my lfskernel as a viable image file.  I have recompiled the kernel with no hitches. Is there a configuration setting that needs to be set in order for this to work?

I thought I might have got bit by dos filenames so my last effort was ->

loadlin LFSKER~1 ro root=/dev/hdc7 hdd=ide-scsi

to no avail.

Thanks for your help!  Any other thoughts?


-v is for debug messages
