Bug Description

I installed Kubuntu 5.10 on /dev/hdb1 and lilo in MBR on /dev/hda.
When I tried to boot system I got the following messages:

FATAL: Module unknown not found
mount: Mounting /dev/root on /root failed: No such device

Begin: Running scripts/init-bottom
mount: Mounting /root/dev on /dev/.static/dev failed: no such file or directory

Target filesystem doesnt have /sbin/init
