I am using the FAQ advised method to boot knoppix 3.4 from an ISO copied to the HD.

Using 'winimage' revealed that the following files were 'in' a folder called /boot/isolinux/ in the ISO: linux24, linux26, minirt24.gz and minirt26.gz.

I guess that the '24' and '26' refer to the 2.4 and 2.6 kernels?

As advised in the FAQ (with slight modification) I used the following command:

loadlin.exe linux24 root=/dev/hda1 initrd=minirt24.gz lang=en ro

And booted into knoppix without any problem - great!

But, when I tried the following command:

loadlin.exe linux26 root=/dev/hda1 initrd=minirt26.gz lang=en ro

The boot process fell over with the error message:

kernel panic: attempt to kill init!

Can anyone advise why this problem occurred and how to fix it?
