The following text is displayed when loading comes to a halt.
Root - NFS: No NFS server available , giving up.
VFS: unable to mount root fs via NFS trying floppy
VFS: insert root floppy and press enter
Floppy inserted, return.
List of all partitions:
0200 1440 fd0 (driver?)
0300 4194302 hda driver: ide-cdrom

No filesystem could mount root, tried: reiserfs ext3 ext2 msdos vfat iso9660
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on
Starting the machine with the root floppy provides the following data;
Filesystem type is ex2fs, partition type 0x83
Checking if "/boot/grub/stage1" exists ... yes
Checking if "/boot/grub/stage2" exists ... yes
Checking if "/boot/grub/e2fs_stage1_5" exists ... yes
Running "embed /boot/grube2fs_stage1_5 (hd0)" ... 15 sectors are embedded.
Running "install /boot/grub/stage1 (hd0) (hd0)1+15 p
(hd0,6)/boot/grub/stage2 /boot/grub/menu.lst" ... succeded
I am at a loss. The grub boot loader says the system is unworkable but
the response from the floppy triggering an unloaded machine says that
there is nothing wrong with the boot loader or the relevant file structures.
Are there any checks that I can carry out on the build to confirm that
it is healthy?
Have I wrongly called the hard disc /dev/hda7, as it is referred to in
