I installed the 2.6.10-1-multimedia-k7 kernel via synaptic.  and then
i gave the  update-grub coomand.  menu.lst was automatically updated;
this is the new entry:

title           aGNUla/DeMuDi, kernel 2.6.10-1-multimedia-k7
root            (hd2,0)
kernel          /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.10-1-multimedia-k7 root=/dev/hdc1 ro

now when i boot, grub launches, i choose 2.6.10-1-multimedia-k7. it
starts to load and then i get this error:

VFS: cannot open root device 'hdc1" or unknown-block (0-0)
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel Panic - not syncing : VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0-0)

I can still boot the 2.4.25 kernel and windowsxp.  I also did this, on
the advice of Free:

# dpkg -i kernel-image-2.6.10-1-multimedia-k7
dpkg: error processing kernel-image-2.6.10-1-multimedia-k7 (--install)
cannot access archive: No such file or directory
error were encountered while processing:

Gustin inquired about initrd.img-2.6.10-1-multimedia.  And I found
that there in no entry in menu.lst about it nor is there such a file
in /boot directory.

Any ideas?
