I created lvm partitions and installed SMS. Everything goes fine with install and it reboots. However, on installing the kernel from 'extra' iso and running lilo, when I reboot it does not boot but hangs and says 'this could be trouble'. Looks like it can not find new kernel.

Obviously, I am leaving out a step Sad Could you point me to what I am doing wrong?

thanks

If you follow the tutorial for LVM setup you should have a generic kernel installed.
Navigate to /boot and copy initrd.splash (or your bootsplash) to initrd-tree
Code:
cp /boot/initrd.splash  /boot/initrd-tree/bootsplash

and recreate the initrd.gz but this time don't add "-c" as it's clears the initrd-tree and create a new one e.g.
Code:
mkinitrd -k 2.6.35.11-smp -m ext4 -f ext4 -r /dev/sms/root -L


If you don't have a generic kernel, install the bootsplash one from extra, and don't forget in /etc/lilo.conf to list the initrd.gz e.g.
Code:
image = /boot/vmlinuz-generic-2.6.35.11-smp
  root = /dev/sda1
  label = SMS
  initrd = /boot/initrd.gz
  read-only


Type 'lilo' and reboot.
