I have a serious problem with my system.
It was a dual boot system. At present it doesn't
boot at all.
I had done a virus scanning and had done something with
the MBR. Later when I restarted I found that instead of the
prompt LILO boot, it just showed LI and hanged.
I thought I might have erased the lilo on the MBR when I
did the cleaning and tried to boot it from a Linux boot disk. But then it got stuck giveing the following message,
Kernel Panic:VFS: Can't mount root fs on 03:02 ...
When I just tried the initial steps of installing linux,
and ran the disk druid, I found that the partitions that
were shown had some problems, it was not in the way that
we had partitioned it. The memory occupied by the partitions
were shown as abnormally large.
At present I intend to boot it using a windows98 floppy.
Could anyone please suggest some guidelines.
Thanks in advance...
