Hi Folks,
Installed Mandrake 7.1 linux4win from a PCPlus magazine CDRom and basically 
choose the automated install, so I would'nt have to bother with partitioning 
and stuff(newbie). The install goes fine untill it's
time to reboot. I get the choice of picking either: Windows 98\Linux, but 
when I choose linux it seems to be starting, but then comes to a stop, 
ending in this..

VFS: Cannot open root device 07:07
Kernel panics: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 07:07

Window 98 boots fine!

My PC: Gateway PII 350Mhz 128Ram. I have one hard drive partitioned into: C: 
2gig fat16, D: 4gig fat32, there's plenty of space.

Any help greatly appreciated,
