booting - init: applet not found kernel panic Sub_title: boot not happening - Attempting to kill init!
I partitioned my HD into two sections - I already have ubuntu on sda 1 (and a swap) and then installed puppy linux onto /dev/sda3
I then added the following instruction (from the final part of the puppy install process) to the bottom of /boot/grub/menu.lst in ubuntu and saved:
title Puppy Linux 421 full install on sda3
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/dsa3 pmedia=atahd nosmp
when pressing esc on grub loading the Puppy Linux 421 full install on sda 3 is there but when selected this happens:
Booting the kernel
init: applet not found
kernel panic - not syncing:
Attempting to kill init!
