linux failing to boot citing insufficient disk space
I have been using red hat linux (fedora core 1) with windows xp through Grub boot loader for some time now.
Yesterday while working in linux a very large output data file was created. However I forgot to delete it. Subsequently, linux is failing to boot saying that the disc space is not sufficient. I had made the mistake from working from inside the root directory itself.
However I can boot normally to windows.
Could anybody help me suggest how to get through the ordeal?
My emergency boot floppy disls in linux have become unusable.
Will it help if I perform an installation upgrade to (say Fedora core 1 or later) keeping the linux partitions as it is and installing only the minimum no: of rpms?
I do not want to format the linux partitions as I have no backup as yet.
I would appreciate an early response.
