No I didn't get any kernel panics...I got ...switchroot: mount failed: No such file or directory, booting has failed...setuproot. Basically I edited grub.conf to look like this:

title Fedora (
        root (hd0,2)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz- 
#      kernel /boot/vmlinuz- ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
        initrd /boot/initrd-
I am a little worried though. I wasn't sure of the implications of such but I should, I think, just define the root partition as being /dev/sda3 (which it is)
I'm a little tired right now. I'm in Seoul, Korea and it's 2 a.m. I will change the line to

title Fedora (
        root (hd0,2)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz- ro root=/dev/hda3 rhgb quiet
Thanks for helping out. As a gift, and really everyone should know about this site, you should check out, if you haven't already. Really deep thinkers speak on various issues (esp. technology).


Here is what my kernel.spec line will look like when I start to compile

%define fedora_build %(R="$Revision: 1.295 $"; R="${R%% \$}"; R="${R##: 1.}"; expr $R - %{fedora_cvs_origin})
Can I add %define fedora_build %(R="$Revision: 1.295.kexec $"; R="${R%% \$}"; R="${R##: 1.}"; expr $R - %{fedora_cvs_origin})
or would this come up as still an older kernel?
