    Our Co-linux machine wont bot our RedHat 9 Linux. While trying to boot we get this message:-
    "Memory: 515584K/52488K available (1535K kernel code, 0k reserved, 527K data, 112k init,  0k highmem)"
    And then it stops.
    Any ideas or suggestions what we can do?

      If you have a "udev" system, then /dev/console would be often missing. So, you have no outputs after start of the init process.

      To fix this, mount your root filesystem or your partition with a live boot disk (Knoppix), and create these device nodes:
      # Create devices: console, null and zero
      # (there are possibly no devices in /coImage/dev/ now)
      mknod -m 600 /coImage/dev/console c 5 1
      mknod -m 666 /coImage/dev/null c 1 3
      mknod -m 666 /coImage/dev/zero c 1 5

      Your running system will mount over a udev later, you will no have future problems with this entries.
      Think RedHat9 is similar to Fedora, please check the wiki:
