Oh, I know now. Don't use LVM unless you know what you are doing
I tried anyway...
It was working....
Then I think I messed up my mbr when I was mucking about in Windoze. That's what I first thought.
I'm using grub: now on hda7 aka (hd0,6) - single 8G Hard Drive.
First primary, instead of mbr. <this is new to me>
<<Kewl little tidbit I learned on this endeavour: grub starts counting at 0
so hda7 is (hd0,6) to grub >> --alar takes careful note!!
I have a /boot partition that is ext2fs (I think). How do I double check?
fdisk -l just says Linux.
Don't think grub is the problem as I can still start W2K...
I get an error 16: inconsistent filesystem structure when I try to launch Fedora Core 4.
If I try linux rescue and run grub manually the kernel loads okay.
boot: linux hda=9964,255,63 rescue
kernel /vmlinux-126.96.36.199.?369_FC4 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rh quiet
initrd /initrd-2.6.11-1.?369_FC4.img // ? = can't read my writing is that 1 or I ?
>> Error 16: Inconsistent filesystem structure
Where do I go from here?
I wish I had taken more notes. Hope there is enuff info for you:
<alar humbly bows to your expertise>
All ideas welcome.
