I'm sorry if this was discussed in the maillist.

Should there be /etc dirctory after I cpio into my partition? I can't
find /etc in my linux partition under installer prompt.

BTW, I use the kernel in /pub/test/vmlinux-indy-2.1.99.tar.gz and got
panic. The "NICE" panic message is:

sgiseeq.c: David S. Miller (
eth0: SGI Seeq8003 blah:blah:blah:blah
Partition check
VFS: Mounted root (ext2 filesystem) readonly.
Freeing unused kernel memory: 32k freed
Warning: unable to open an initial console.
kernel panic: No init found. Try passing init= optional to kernel.

And I use the kernel in GetingStarted directory, and got panic, too.
