Is there any other way to redo the MBR?
I think this should work :
1. boot the system using the 1st cd of the slackware.
2. at the promt write #linx root=/dev/hdxy ro
....where x = a ( if your hard disk is primary master )
x = b ( if your hard disk is primary slave )
x = c ( if your hard disk is secondary master )
x = d ( if your hard disk is secondary slave )
and y = the partition number which you have assigned as root.
after doing this, do
it should fix your problem
regards ( plz. correct me if i'm wrong )
