thank you, idid not know that

norhgbquiet is not a valid option...simply remove the entire thing (the

I did not use norhgbquiet as an option, just as a phrase in title
I removed  all of "rhgb quiet" for this stanza

sda1 is the entire f10 /  , no separate /boot partition,
is that a problem?
I trying to not use LVM

sda3 is being used for another ancient rh8 linux
for a legacy app  and should be playing no role
in my problems here

booted into fc5 I have sda1 mounted on /f10liv 
root bootp ~]# mount
/dev/sdb6 on / type ext3 (rw)
proc on /proc type proc (rw)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)
/dev/sda1 on /f10liv type ext3 (rw)
...

I explicitly said they are scsi disks in one of my responses
and yes they are 36gb
Again, does using scsi disks mean i have special requirements?
