I have installed redhat 8.0 without any mistake but
later I had to reinstall win98 and then I lost my grup loader.Now i am not able to reach redhat 'cause I dont have
any boot disk.Is there a way to bring Grup loader back?
when you install redhat you get a screen with various options like Gamestation, or Workstation etc
one of the options is Choose Individual Packages. Choose this option and add "a couple of packages" such as Kernel Source or Development or another Office suite.
If you add packages then the bootloader will be changed as well thus allowing you to install Grub or Lilo.
also if you rerun the installer and do the upgrade option and deselect all packages you can still get to the portion of the installer where you can make a boot disk. This will get you back in to RH where you can reinstall grub.
like i said
install the kernel source packages
or the development packages
or any of the server packages
these will effect the kernel which will in turn make the bootloader need an update
which will allow you to re-install it
Yeah, that's what you'd think, but even after installing some kernel package stuff, it gives the same message. I had to reinstall Red Hat anyways, so I got my grub goin ... still curious about that message though.
