    Well, I compiled and installed the 2.4.22 kernel fo RH9 and at boot up I get these errors:

    ds: no socket drivers loaded
    VFS: cannot open root device "LABEL=1" or 0:00
    Please append a correct "root=" boot option
    kernel panic: VFS unable to mount root fs on 0:00

    Does anyone know whats going on here? I'm just a n00b so I'm pretty much lost on a lot of linux related questions and solutions. Thanks.

    When you compiled the new kernel, did you revamp your bootloader to run the new kernel?

    I have the same problem as another member. I installed a new kernel (2.4.22) from a system running a 2.4.20 kernel. Everything compiled fine but when I reboot, I get the following:

    Please append a correct "root=" boot option
    kernel panic: VFS unable to mount root fs on 0:00

    However, my lilo.conf file does contain root="img file". What am I doing wrong?
