[PlanetCCRMA] Audio kernel install problem (continued)

   Did you choose ext2 or ext3? I have heard that it's a mistake to choose
ext3 during the install. It's a journaling file system and the install
doesn't work. I thin you want to make sure you choose ext2, then use maybe
'tune2fs' to convert it from ext2 to ext3.

   I ask this because of line 4 of the messages below.

   Also, why no swap partition? I'd suggest using Disk Druid during the
install, making the Linux partition 4GB, use a 768MB swap (2 * memory), but
definitely have a swap. I think you need that to get this fixed.

   Last thing, I think Linux prefers Plug and Play be off in BIOS. I'm not
sure if Windows cares.

   Very strange set of problems.

  I used WXP Defrag to get those files moved to the
front of the disk and then re-sized below the 1024th
cylinder with fips.
  The Red Hat Installer was not giving the boot
warning messages during install afterwards.
  I installed Apt and updated via Red Hats update and
then Red Planet's.  Without my asking, it updated the
kernel also.
  When I reboot, I still have the same problem.  Here
is the error message,

mounting root filesystem
kmod: failed to exec /sbin/modprobe -s -k
block-major-33 errno=2
mount: error 6 mounting ext 3
pivotroot: pivot_root (/sysroot, sysroot/initrd)
failed: 2
freeing unused kernel memory: 152k freed
kernel panic: no init found
try passing init= option to kernel

  All those files you mentioned are in /boot.

Thank you for any help.
