On drive a I have 2 versions of windows, on drive B 2 versions of Suse and on drive C Knoppix, Fedora and some room.
The systems where installed over a period of time. The last was the second Suse System (9.2) on drive B.
I boot with Grub and each time I installed a new OS I updated the MENU.LST file in the last installed OS, to get access to the others. That worked fine but recently I made a mistake.
From Knoppix I used Gparted to make the second partition on drive B smaller, so I could test another Linux version. That was a big mistake, because the boot was in that partition and you can imagine what happened.
With a startup cd I managed to get back the first Suse version (9.1) - knoppix - fedora and the windows stuff. But when I tried to access B2 (with
Suse 9.2) I got a kernel panic - no init found. I'm sure I took the right parameters, because As a safety precaution, I made copies of all the menu files to the vfat partition, so I can make a copy.
Has anybody a suggestion about the way to go now? I can always reinstall, but I can also learn a lot in reactivating the system.
