hi @all,

i have the following problem. after i have built my bootable cd with the 
following command:

mkisofs -o /tmp/boot.iso -b isolinux/isolinux.bin -c isolinux/boot.cat 
-no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table -R -J -v -T .

i burn it to cd with the command:

cdrecord -v speed=20 dev=0,0,0 /tmp/boot.iso

when i now try to boot the cd i get the bootimage/bootmenu which can be 
executed without any problem.

after i start the bootprocess the following scenario occures:

Loading vmlinuz..................................
Loading initrd.gz................................

Then the screen blanks and tries to:
Uncompressing Linux......OK, boting the kernel.

after that line the computer resets and the cd tries to boot again.

I have already tried to boot the iso with vmware. VMware has the same 
*** Virtual machine kernel stack fault (hardware reset) ***
The virtual machine just suffered a stack fault in kernel mode. On a 
real computer, this would amount to a reset of the processor. It can be 
caused by an incorrect configuration of the virtual machine, a bug in 
the operating system, or a problem in the VMware Workstation software. 
Press OK to reboot virtual machine or Cancel to shut it down.

Any ideas how to get the cdrom booting, giving me a hint to solve this 
problem, respectivly???
