Subject: [gentoo-laptop] thinkpad T43 boot problem
Date: Tue, 24 Apr 2007 22:08:43

I am trying to set up a T43 with grub.

I installed grub, set up the grub.conf file and it gets past the splash
screen and starts to load devices, then a kernel panic:

Cannot open root device "sda3" or unknown-block (2,0)

This lapttop has sata drive I guess, I have the kernel sata driver
loaded, and I have tried all kinds of various alternatives such as hda3,
sda1, hda1, (hd0,0) etc...  I know that the "root" is correct because
the splash screen is fine.

Does anybody have experience setting up grub on a T43?
