Rescude mode help needed


Hello,

I am total newbie about Linux, i have Linux webserver. I made a mistake and decided to update kernel.

As a result, kernel is updated but grub.conf didnīt. So i canīt boot webserver.

I am at rescued mode now. I need to reach my /dev/sda than i need to edit grub.conf

But i couldnīt manage how to connect my dev/sda via rescued mode. There is mnt folder but it is empty. Perhaps i am missing something. I would be glad if someone can help

at grub menu, type 'e' to edit the entry, modify it and then type 'b' to boot.
When you have booted your kernel, you can modify the menu.lst file so you don't have to edit at next boot.

ok,

I have different problem now. My friend helped me to mount disk to /mnt folder.

Now i have my /dev/sda at /mnt folder at rescue cd mode.


Now my problem is, i donīt really know what to do. I upgraded kernel but i thought i need to edit grub.conf but couldnt manage how to do it.

type:
vi /mnt/boot/grub/menu.lst
Then, type 'i' to insert text, 'Esc' to escape insert mode, 'x' to delete text and ":wq" to save.
