All,

    How do I get my ELF kernel to boot.  I was able to install it OK, and I
told it to load "/boot/loader" at the prompt, but the kernel loaded and then
went into a panic when it couldn't mount the root partition.  Can anybody
send me some simple instructions on how to boot the ELF kernel?

Thank you in advance,

Tom Veldhouse
