    Hdd-install and grub boot??

    I installed Knoppix-3.4 to hatd-disk, install with lilo (default) boot works.

    I want to try grub boot and have problems getting the kernel options right:

    title knoppix-3.4
    kernel (hd0,2)/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.5 ramdisk=100000 lang=us apm=power-off atapicd nomce\
    ro root=/dev/hda3
    module (hd0,2)/boot/initrd.img-2.6.5

    which are same (as in lilo.conf) except for ro root=/dev/hda3

    The boot messages..
    ...
    RAMDISK: incomplete write (-28 != 3276 4194304
    EXT2-fs:hda3: couldn't mount beacause of unsupported optional feaures(4)
    Kernel panic:VFS: Unable to mount root fs on /dev/hda3
    (hangs here)

    Any ideas?

    Let update-grub do the work for you.

    apt-get install grub
    grub-install /dev/hda
    update-grub
    reboot
