Help me please, as I can't able to boot the system. I'm very new to Linux. I installed Linux RHEL5 with VMWare, When I'm starting the server I get the command line as

grub>

What should I do now to start the server.

the command is simply 'boot' and press return.

I believe 'help' will get GRUB to show some basic help.

However, RHEL4 and 5 should have configured GRUB to automatically boot the appropriate kernel. I fear you will encounter problems... good luck.

You would typically get the grub prompt if it cannot find its configuration file.....

Is this a new issue, or did it appear the first time you installed?

Since this is happening with VMWare, is it when the machine is booted, or something to do with going to Linux from something else? Please describe the complete configuration of the system.

Boot command throws an error saying "Kernel must be loaded before".

Its was working fine before, I'm using Windows XP, installed linux with VMWare. Linux was working fine until I added some more disk space to the Linux Instance and while formating the disk I specified exft3 and also changes the present file system format to exft3(I don't remember the new format name, but it is something like exft3), even after that the system was working fine, until I rebooted the windows machine, even I did not reboot the linux server in between that.
