Help with build world - Can't mount root after bootin from /k ernel



Hello,

	I had freeBSD 5.1 installed, used cvsup on the stable branch, then
built world.

Ok so disk 2 is the fix it disc, I'll pop that sucker in and go from there.

Thanks,
-Jason

We are missing some details...like the version you are trying to install.
Was it V4 or V5. And, if it was V5, were you updating from a
V5 system or a V4 system. If you were updating from a V4 system to a newer
V4 system, are you sure you got the tag right in your supfile?(I'm guessing
from the symptoms that you were going from V4 to V5, but I can't be sure.)

In any case, it looks like a good time to boot the fixit disk. (This is the
second CD image from the standard distribution.
