Success: booting linux for HA
Sept 03,98


I had installed Linux on one local HDD with Shared HDD turned OFF

I tried to boot it just now!(lilo) I did like:

1. With no boot parameters it said Unable to mount root.
2. I did "boot:> linux root=/dev/sdb2"
It was able to boot but said droping you to a shell to check
3. I rebooted the Server with Shared BOX OFF. and edited etc/fstab to
show final settings like:

/dev/sda1 /user ext2 defaults 1 1
/dev/sdb2 / ext2 defaults 1 1
/dev/sdb1 /c msdos defaults 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy ext2 noauto 0 0
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,ro 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
4. Rebooted Server with Shared box ON. the system is able to boot NOW!

Will post complete Screen display tomorrow. Its 09 PM here -I need to
go. Good Night.
