fdisk second drive now kernel panic


I am new to linux. I have two ide drives. when I did the install I formated both drives. I ran mount from the terminal and there was no mount for /dev/hdb. I tried to mount it but it keep telling me it was busy. So I ran fdisk and deleted the partition and saved changes. I restarted and I get a kernel panic. Here are some of the errors on the screen.

hdd: no disk in drive
can't find device with uuid" a lot of letters and number"
error: /bin/lvm exited abnormally pid 314
mount error 6 mounting ext3
mount error 2 mounting none
switchroot: mount failed: 22
umount /initrd/dev failded: 2
Kernal Panic

I know I could just do a reinstall but I want to learn how to fix this kind of stuff.

Where these two drives combined into one logical volume using LVM?

They might have been. I guess if that is the case I have to reinstall. I think there was something about that on the error screen. Something like can find LMV01 I might have the error message wrong but I am sure it mentioned LVM.

I'm pretty sure Fedora will default to using a logical volume if you tell it to partition your disks. So I think that you basically deleted half of your logical volume. I may very well be wrong about this, but from what you have said, I think that it is the most likely explanation.

There is, but would take way too long to walk a new user through.
Re-install will be quicker and easier. Think of it as an educational experience - you may not have learnt much from it yet, but you learnt one thing not to do ...

There is a LVM howto on tldp.org if you would like to get some background.

Cool

I did the reinstall. Thinks for the help cgjones and syg00. You will see me back here I sure. I am making the switch from MS. I support windows servers at work and would like to move to Linux servers. I know I have a lot of work to do but I can't stand MS. Thanks again for your help.
