Thanks, that did the trick. My problem was that I used "make bzdisk" so
that I could test the kernel
before installing it. By doing that it installed the intrd file on the
diskette, not on the hard drive.
I copied the file from the diskette, modified the menu.lst file and
re-booted. Worked like a charm :-).
Thanks to all the helped.
