I'd suggest that you use your Installation CD, load it and enter a terminal as root and enter command 'fdisk -l' (lower case letter L) and post it here. Using the Live CD, mount your Debian root partition and see what entry(s) you have in the /boot/grub/menu.lst file.
Sorry! I didnot described the problem correctly .
I describe from first -
Also previously I was using debian.I was "repairing file system " from linux bootable cd (the terminology for "reparing file system "of yours may be different . It is only copying files from cd again )
after cd booted the message came
"could'nt start kdeinit. check your installation "
then tere was only 'ok' option. I clicked to it .(return key didn't worked) .
then next message was
"Not enough memory to start kde!
(At least 82 MB required)
Using TWM windomanager instead .
caution not all programs in the left-mousebutton - menu will work here.!"
Again there was only way to click 'ok'. as i clicked shell terminal opened .
Knoppix@[knoppix] $ su
Knoppix@[knoppix] # knoppix-installer
then one by one dialog boxes com i went as usual.
I used partition sda2 for installing linux as i used before.
the things described above are also happenning now if i try from cd again.
Now the partition table is like this
Device boot------start--- end-------blocks ----------id-----system
/dev/sda1---------1 ------127 ------1020096 ---------82------Linux swap / solaris
/dev/sda2 2------2039-------15358140 ---------83------linux (root partition)
/dev/sda3 3-----19457-------139910085---------83-------linux (home partition)
I have two harddisks.
now my important data is in home partition. 34 days working of my collegues and mine also is trapped there .
