Hi, I have no T43 but:<br><br>Check the settings of your grub.conf, I put my gentoo portion grub.conf<br><br>#Booting Gentoo 2.6.20-r6<br>title Gentoo GNU/Linux 2.6.20<br>root (hd0,1)<br>kernel /boot/2.6.20-gentoo-r6 root=/dev/sda2 vga=0x318 video=vesafb:mtrr:3,ywrap
<br><br>It is very important the &quot;root=/dev/sdaX&quot; parameter. I have no any splash image (yet)..It is a good idea if you put your grub.conf here to see the posiible problem too...<br><br>I hope help you :D<br><br>

Hi,<br><br>I am trying to set up a T43 with grub.<br><br>I installed grub, set up the grub.conf file and it gets past the splash<br>screen and starts to load devices, then a kernel panic:<br><br>Cannot open root device &quot;sda3&quot; or unknown-block (2,0)
<br><br>This lapttop has sata drive I guess, I have the kernel sata driver<br>loaded, and I have tried all kinds of various alternatives such as hda3,<br>sda1, hda1, (hd0,0) etc...&nbsp;&nbsp;I know that the &quot;root&quot; is correct because
<br>the splash screen is fine.<br><br>Does anybody have experience setting up grub on a T43?<br><br>Thanks<br>rick<br><br><br><br>--<br><a href="mailto:gentoo-laptop@g.o">gentoo-laptop@g.o</a> mailing list<br>
