Subject: PLS need help with new ISO rebuilding


I've got a problem with using rebuilded iso image of Owl cd-rom.

There was nesessary to change bzImage (and also to use new hardware (LSI SCSI controller). New bzImage was builded successfully. After building new kernel, i've did the following

# cd /mnt
# mount /home/zorg/iso/Owl-current-20050703-i386.iso /mnt/disk -o loop
# mkdir OWL
# cd disk
# cp -a * ../OWL/.
# umount /mnt/disk

after that i've change bzImage and in /mnt/OWL/boot

# chroot /mnt/OWL
# cd /boot
# /boot/

here is the output

Added ide-pri-master * <-- also /etc/lilo.conf was corrected (cdrom is set up as /dev/hda)
Added ide-pri-slave

Added scsi

# ^d
# pwd

# mkisofs -v -R -J -l -b boot/floppy.image -c boot/boot.catalog -o ~/iso/Owl-new.iso OWL/

~/iso/Owl-new.iso - completely good, bootable, new hardware is ok, it is possible to create new filesystems on SCSI disks, and mount them in order to install Owl as usual, but(!). After command make installworld (in ~build) I've received a message of impossibity to findout installworld.conf.

After several times of digging and rebuilding iso images and booting from original CD from "" a througly view output of booting and saw a little difference - in case of booting from original CD, after INIT 2.85 string there is a string about mounting RAM disk, and while booting from my iso - no such string.

Where is my mistake? Thank you for advise.
