GRUB Error 17 on DamnSmallLinux (DSL)


I just finished installing DSL and when it is rebooting, I get the error and it looks something like this:

Error 17
Please wait..

but nothing happens. What do I do?

My swap is 396MB on /dev/hda1 and my Linux is on /dev/hda5. The DSL version is 3.4.4

Thanks in advance!

Looks like unable to mount the partition, what file system are you using?
