December 30th, 2009, 05:10 PM

i'm using Karmic and RHEL5 with Karmic Grub.

i install one old Fedora2,in a different partition than Karmic and RHEL5.
but failed to boot Fedora2 while RHEL5 and Karmic is still bootable.

here is result of update-grub

sudo update-grub

*** I attached my grub.cfg as grub.txt

just editing the blkid for RHEL5 is fine to boot RHEL5.
But for Fedora2, Kernel Panic message gives in the first
Screen within 5 or 6 line.

then i tried to change the blkid with /dev/sda method (i'm not sure how to write this,you'll see this in the recovery section of grub.cfg)
it load many hardwares,internel devices,CD-Rom,....

after 2-3 screen text message (like normal boot)
it gives like something below:

mount: error 6 mounting ext3
umount /initrd/proc failed:2
Freeing unused kernel memory : 144k freed
Kernel panic : No init found . Try passing init= option to kernel

also, i didn't understand the "/1" in the blkid command.

Any idea/solution how to boot this old Fedora2 ?
happy new year in advance.
