(Okay - probably not/dev/sdb1, as that is your /boot partition...) In any case, you are not giving the kernel a valid partition for /, so it panics. Now, as far as the cursor problem, that is probably a hardware/software cursor selection problem, and may requiring editing your xorg.conf file. I forget the exact option, but someone will have it. Or do a search on hardware cursor. Mikkel -- Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for thou art crunchy and taste good with Ketchup!
