Here are the last two lines that seem relavent.

Sh-2021: reiserfs_read_super: can not find reiserfs on ide0(3.0)
Kernel panic :UFS: Unableto mount root fs on 0:300

Has this got something to do with where disk 1 is placing it's connents?
Do I have to remove it from cfdisk? How do I remove LILO or can I leave it. Help would be appreciatred.
Regards, Richard.

In its most basic form, it means that the loader cannot find the root filesystem. The reason for this can be many different reasons. in my experiences, i have received kernel panics because the filesystem my root was stored on was not compiled into my kernel.

For example, my root filesystem was reiserfs, and when compiling my kernel, i forgot to include reiserfs, so, the booting kernel had no idea how to mount the root filesystem.

Is this a kernel that you compiled yourself? Do you know what filesystem your parititons are?

There are two filesystem partitions.
1. windows
2. linux ext2 as recomended.
As far as I know every kernel that was marked was installed, I didn't make any changes, additions. Should I have added reiserfs?
