I had a working installation of SUSE Linux 10.0 on my system. The drive has XP, the linux root, swap, and a data partition. I wanted to delete the data partition (because it's ntfs) and create a linux native type of partition. the SUSE YAST tool would not let me do it. So I went to Partition Magic and did it there.
Now when I start up it says, "GRUB Loading" and then "Error 17." Maybe there is a problem with grub.. So I go into Knoppix, chroot to my linux root, and run "grub-install /dev/hdc" (grub was installed to mbr) and it tells me:
The file /boot/grub/stage1 not read correctly.
