Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

In my expereince that error message means that the RH installation was set up incorrectly, in which case you need to re-install. Or there is a problem with HD/SCSI drivers. Are you using SCSI or SATA? I have not been able to get RH9 installed using SATA.
the cause is that I was trying to update my Mdk9.0 to 2.4.22 (BIG MISTAKE, install Mdk 9.1 instead). I've also tried to upgrades some other rpm before rebooting.
So I spent my last night making a frech install of MDK9.1 (did not work after 2 tries (3hr total waste).
This morning I restarted MDK9.0 installation wich I know work well.
I did not get a real good resolution but I remember having seen one in the Kernel How-To... Maybe you can take a look even if by now I bet you reinstalled everything. Count on me, I'll print that how-to for the next crash !!!
I'm still wondering why 9.1 installation did not goes right (installation seem ok but when I choose either kde or gnome at login, the computer seem to run for eternity some files I don't know. It was not finished after 5 hours of sleep. It's why this morning I was so pissed off and that I decided the best thing (fastest way) was to reinstall 9.0.
I hope It will be ok when I return from work.
If you ever find a quote of the grub/lilo recuperation, please post it.
