The e2fsprogs of RH seems not to have the findfs command...
Try this one, that contains findfs, by running, as root :

wget ftp://rpmfind.net/linux/rawhide/1.0/....32-6.i386.rpm
rpm -i e2fsprogs-1.32-6.i386.rpm

When I try to install the package, I get about 30 errors

It goes like this

file /usr/share/man/man8/e2fsck.8.gz from install of e2fsprogs-1.32-6 conflicts with the file from package e2fsprogs-1.27-9

every error is the same except e2fsck.8.gz is different

I am root...

After some google-ing i found that the only thing I needed to do was:

/sbin/grub-install /dev/hda

And guess what, works like a charm...

Thanks for trying to help me though

If you still want findfs, you just have to :

rpm -e e2fsprogs && rpm -i e2fsprogs.rpm

the same thing happened to me I decided to removed and reistall linux but I found that I caould not get back into widows after I had done this

so you are running xp boot from the cd and enter thr console recovery mode select the install you need to install and look through the commands there should be one call fix mbr

there is in 2k and I think its very similar.type fixmbr at the command prompt and confim you selections this should then allow you to boot into windows at least then you can check everything is there and then either delete the linux partitions and reinstall or attempt to repair it I am also a linux newbie

so there may be a linux based way but I know this works and will give you access to you windows partition.

I found this useful during my continuing migration away from widows to redhat 9.

Good luck hope this helps. :-)

uM, if you have a redhat install disk boot from it to do a system update or fix (an install option, not rescue) and go through but but don't add any new packages, except when it asks you if you want to change boot loaders, then say yes, make sure it's a new one, lilo or grub, lilo worked for me (easier to config even tho grub is overall cooler) then back out and boot in rescue mode and do what lesscrazy up there said (chroot sysimage etc, find lilo, and run it, it should config itself and tell you why if it can't) then reboot and linux should work: my prob, I had to do this after newbeskily wiping out lilo and grub, is that now linux works, and xp shows up in the bootloader, xp won't boot...maybe lesscrazy up there can help me with that....and I could let'em know how to get his/her gender right in french....hope that helps,c.
