Ho all,

I have dual boot for window 2000 professional and Fedora Core 2 in two seperate HD. Lately, windoiw2000 has been a bad boy becasue winmgmt.exe error message kept poping up. I decided to re-install the OS. (I really don't like MS that much but I need to run a few program under MS because I cannot find a suitable program for FC@.)

After re-installed and trying to restored dual boot, I got the following message.

kernel panic: -not syncing: VFS unable to mount root fs on unkown black (8,3)

Any ideas how I can fix it? I googled around, but I have a clear idea yet.

Below is the grub.conf
