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.

Looks like the kernel or related file is missing.
You could use the install media and select Rescue mode to edit /boot/grub/grub.conf on the disk and use another kernel.
Usually it defaults to 3 kernels being configured there. https://www.centos.org/docs/5/html/I...mode-boot.html

Reason: Removed (deleted) spam addressing part.
its just a VM workstation environment
am just developing an environment for practicing Linux(would be installing only one application with oracle database)
i have been with linux environment for the past three months only(novice)
so , i would read the links wat u have mentioned
thank u so much for your patience and clearing my silly mistakes
i could not find the boot partition files(grub.conf) etc
i created a directory called moon
and used this command
mount -t ext3 /dev/sda1 /moon (since sda1 contains the boot partition )
when i navigated to /moon i found the files which is attached to the snapshot
The image in your last post shows the kernel (vmlinuz...) which is shown as a hidden file (prefixed by a dot (.) and is a different verson than the kernel from your initial post?? No other boot files show. What's in the lost+found directory?
