Hello all,

Ubuntu 8.04
Dell PowoeEdge 2650

Upon rebooting the system after the successful installation I was presented with a busybox shell. Error messages on boot include:

"Begin: Mounting root file system... ...
Begin: Running /scipts/local-top ...
/init: /init: 1: cannot open /dev/root: No such device or address
Begin: Running /scripts/local-premount ...
Done." ...
"Target filesystem doesn't have /sbin/init"

What is happening? have any idea?
