I download "nstall-ppc64-pSeries-minimal-2004.1.iso" from (http://dev.gentoo.org/~tgall) and burned it into CD.

After my server booting, I type the command as follows

0>boot cdrom:,yaboot

then I enter yaboot, I typed

boot:cdrom:1,/boot/pSeries

at last, the computer told me:

kernel panic vfs:unable to mount root fs

what should I do ?? and what the "root" should be???

Thank you for your answering!

I think you need some more parameters about where the rootfs is. Open the CD and see what's in yaboot.conf. Probably need root=/dev/ram0 and initrd=something.

Sorry, but I'm on PReP hardware so I don't get the luxuries of yaboot ;)
