can you please provide the menu.lst or isolinux.cfg file for that case.

or better a screenshot of your pendrive opened in file browser.
i just want to see the root structure of your multi-boot envi.

Subject description: Kernel Panic not syncing try using init option
 

So, I downloaded Fatdog64-600-seamonkey.iso file from ibiblio. The checksum was correct after the download. I installed the iso into a 4GB flash drive using the dd command on an Ubuntu machine. I rebooted the machine and successfully got to the splash page for fatdog64, waited for the requisite 5 seconds for the boot to start and then...

Kernel Panic.. not syncing up... and so on

Is there any guidance on what may be the problem?

My machine is a Lenovo netbook, nothing special, I booted Mageia successfully from a liveUSB yesterday so I am hoping that I am just missing some configuration thingy that I need to do or a boot parameter that I should be setting?

Thanks

is that a hybrid iso as standard puppy iso will not work by dd'ing.

In which case mounting and copying files would be needed and a boot loader installing.

i'm quite new to bootlace.i must get used 2 this.
but, syslinux is easier,i think.

bootlace.com is in the path of newer puppies.... it has a simplicity about it and it can run in linux or DOS which is handy.

But see my penquin problem on my usb stick....

mike

Hi, I saw this post and was wondering if I can have this as a boot screen, using grub, or if I have to use grub4dos?

Also, if I can do this with grub, will you guys help me get this set up?

Thank you, for your assistance in this matter.

either works...

you add

gfxmenu /penquins

near the top of menu.lst
and pop the penquin file in the same place...example is root of partition but you can use a path to a folder eg /boot/penquins
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/110545536/Misc/penguins

thats it

Ok, guys thank you for helping me get this setup.

I fixed the problem with it not displaying. It's working beautifully now.

I had to use an updated method since I run ext4 partitions.

What worked for me, in case anyone else needs it, is this thread/turorial:
