OK, this time I get a different error:

****

VFS: Mounted root (ext2 filesystem)
Red Hat nash version 3.1.6-mdk starting
Mounting /proc filesystem
Creating root device
Mounting root filesystem
mount: error 19 mounting ext2 flags Freeing unused kernel memory: 712k freed
Kernel panic: No init found. Try passing init= option to kernel.

****

So it looks like it got further, but has found a new stumbling block!

I also had a look at the man page for initrd and noticed that there is
a --fstab option, which I might need to use, as my current setup is as
follows:

/dev/hda1 - boot partition (mounted on /boot) 14Mb
/dev/hda6 - install partition (mounted on /) 2.5Gb
/dev/hda4 - LVM partition, contains logical volumes for /, /usr, /var, /home
and /tmp.

When I boot to hda6, I mount the LVM partitions in the relevant directories,
within /new-disk.

This means that the fstab that is relevant to LVM exists in
/new-disk/ROOT/etc/fstab when I boot to hda6, which is currently the only
configuration that is working.

So I tried running mkinitrd -v --fstab /new-disk/ROOT/etc/fstab -f
/boot/initrd `uname -r`, which gives me this error:

****

Interesting that it finds no volume groups.

A vgdisplay from when I boot to the install partition gives the following:

[root firewall root]# vgdisplay

My guess is that I have not copied something (that is LVM related) from the
original partition to the logical partition that LVM requires to work?
Could this be something in

The copy command(s) that I used were:

cd / && echo cp -a `/bin/ls -1Ab | egrep -v
"^new-disk$|^proc$|^home$|^usr$|^tmp$|^var$|^Webserver$|^opt$|^boot$"`
/new-disk/ROOT | sh
cp -a /home/* /new-disk/home/
cp -a /usr/* /new-disk/usr/
cp -a /tmp/* /new-disk/tmp/
cp -a /var/* /new-disk/var/
cp -a /opt/* /new-disk/opt/
cp -a /Webserver /new-disk/Webserver

I then had a look around and copied /proc/lvm to /new-disk/ROOT/proc/lvm and
tried again, but that didn't help.

Any further thoughts are welcomed!

Cheers,

Ben
