Hi again...

After trying to install fuppes UPnP server on my SMS on USB stick i gave up.

I cum to the point i relize the root partition was to small.. Smile

So i tried to install the SMS installation CD to a partition on my USB Harddrive with VMWare and the installation went very well.

But after i try to reboot i get kernel panik and it cant find my ROOT partition.. :/

I have tried the Huge and Default kernels... with same result..

I dont wanna use an intern hardrive cose the spare drivers i got is to noisy..:/

Any suggestions ?

Have you install lilo on your USB HDD?

To boot in you system boot from SMS.Native.CD-Install and at prompt type
Code:
hugesmp.s  root=/dev/your.usb.hdd  rdinit=ro
