Hi guys,
I did a stage 3 install, and when I rebooted for the first time I first get this:

"you passed an undefined mode number"

which I guess I can fix later cause once I pressed space it seemed to boot fine.
After that however I get this:

/bin/sh: can't access tty; job control turned off
attempt to access beyond end of device
01:00: rw=0, want=4182, limit=4096

Any ideas on what to do next?
I'm in knoppix right now if you need me to show any config files.

Thanx
Dswissmiss

ps: still fairly new at this, so I'd be grateful if you can walk me through whatever it is I need to do in detail...thanx :oops:

posting your grub.conf would probably help if you're still having problems.
