Re: Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!

Thanks, Lonni. Something really funny happens now: it boots, but it

Check the labels. Probably grub is using the wrong labels to mount the root filesystem (and other filesystems you may have). One way to test is editing the grub entry at boot time (press any key when the grub menu appears, choose the FC6 entry and press "a" to edit the kernel parameters) and replacing root=LABEL=/ by root=/dev/hdaX , so it explicitly points to the device where the FC6 filesystem resides. This way , there's no chance the FC4 partition will be mounted by mistake.
