KERNAL PROBLEM

by parvus1202 In reply to KERNAL PROBLEM

You mean Kernel. Kernel is the middle man who talks between program and operating system and the one who gives information during boot and reboot. If you have a damage kernel, then you have a dead computer. Kernel runs on all flatforms, NTFS, FAT32,Linux, etc. They have their own kernels. Although I am not sure about this, you must have compiled a Kernel for FAT32 when you have NTFS. You might want to visit Microsoft for this matter and try to download Kernel mode for Win200, NT Win ME etc. Not sure though if they have cross over from FAT32 to NTFS.

As of now, the kernel only supports read-only mounting of NTFS filesystems. Make sure to mount it as READ-ONLY.

First you need to figure out which boot loader you really are using. GRUB and LILO are both boot loaders, but only one should be active at a time.
How did you configure your kernel to compile it. I recommend untarring the source and running 'makemenuconfig' to configure it. Compile it, then don't forget to copy it from your source tree to /boot. Add it to your boot loader config and you should be good to go.

Stick to running lilo for the boot loader until you understand GRUB a little better. It will give you the same performance, it's easier to add and remove boot parameters from /etc/lilo.conf, and the 1024 cylinder issue has been fixed with the lastest releases.

GRUB is great, but it is trickier to manage
