Cover the obvious ... Did you do a "make modules" then a
The kernel I installed keeps complaining about an unrecognised block (0,0) on
the boot partition, and does a kernel panic. When I load the default kernel, it
does not have the problem. However, this time I am trying to do this without
initrd (I compiled the kernel with initrd turned off, and do not have an initrd
line in lilo.conf for that kernel).
