View Full Version : [ubuntu] Unbuntu root= path for livecd??

December 25th, 2008, 12:02 AM
Good evening!

I have a Fujitsu Lifebook (B-2562) that i would like to install Ubuntu on. It does not have a cd-rom so i have made a boot disk to use driers to access a usb-cdrom and got things working there. My problem is that it is a DOS boot disk and uses linld.com to launch the linux part. I can launch the kernel (/casper/vmlinuz) but it gets to where it wants to load the root device and fails/ I have tried /dev/ram, /dev/rd0, /dev/ram0, /dev/sda1, etc. and can not get any to work. Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks!

linld command i am using:
d:\>a:\linld.com image=vmlinuz initrd=initrd.gz cl=root=/dev/ram
