Hi. I installed F16 with the live cd. had to use acpi=off to get the cd to load and also to get the hard drive to (almost) bootup. It stops before completing the fresh install boot with the message: dracut Warning No root device "block:/dev/sda5" found
i have ubuntu on sda3 and xp on sda1 and sda2. used to have F15 on sda5.
chose the option to install boot loader in first sector so it would continue to use ubuntu boot loader.
have been reading posts, but haven't found anyone installing F16 with similar problem.
thanks for any help.
looking at /dev there is no sda5. there is a sda, sdb, sdc, sdd, sde, and sde1 thru sde7 and sg0 thru sg6.
do you think i need to change the boot command to use sde5 instead of sda5 ?

weird, but all i did was c-a-d and reboot, this time it worked.
now i have sda1 thru sda7 instead of sde1 thru sde7.

i would mark this as solved, but don't see how to do that..
