    Zipslack - Kernel Panic: No Init found.

    I've got a harddisk, win98 installed on a partition, the other partition is slackware (zipslack) in a map linux. I changed the line in linux.bat to hda1 rw
    I booted in dos and got this error:
    Code:
    check_pseudo_root: mounted as root
    VFS: Mounted root (umsdos filesystem).
    Freeing unused kernel memory: 144k freed
    Warning: unable to open an initial console.
    Kernel panic: No init found. Try passing init= option to kernel.

    Correct. ZipSlack should be unzipped to the top level directory of the partition you wish to use. So if you have only one HDD, then the top level directory would be C:\

    Note: /dev/hda refers to the entire HDD while /dev/hda1 refers to a particular partition.

    Aww the good ole' days.

    I remimber my very first time trying linux. I used a similar thing, I think it was "PhatLinux" or somesuch. It ran as a loop filesystem on top of my windows fat partition.
