   Hi. Good to see you here. (Jeff is a fellow Pro Tools user.)

   You might boot into the old kernel, load fdisk /dev/hda and look at what
you see for partitions.

   Here are the entries in my /etc/fstab:

LABEL=/                 /                       ext2    defaults        1 1
none                    /dev/pts                devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0 0
none                    /proc                   proc    defaults        0 0
none                    /dev/shm                tmpfs   defaults        0 0
/dev/hda4               swap                    swap    defaults        0 0
/dev/cdrom              /mnt/cdrom              iso9660
noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0                /mnt/floppy             auto    noauto,owner,kudzu 0
/dev/sda1               /mnt/1394               vfat    noauto,noatime,user
0 0

   Let us know how it goes.

Take care,

I've seen this before but it was due to a wrongly configured
/etc/fstab file. That can't be the reason in your case because
you are able to boot fine with the older kernel.

I assume the install of the kernel was fine and you did not
see any errors.

What do you have in /boot? Do a:
  ls -l /boot/*2.4.19*

You should at least see these files:


Do you see any errors during the boot process? The only thing
I can think of right now is that the new kernel is not seeing
your hard disk at all and then, of course, the rest follows.
What is the hardware you have? Motherboard? Disk?
