Angry Help -- RH9 Kernel Panic

When i installed 2003 of course damm windows overrides the MBR and all i see is to choose from XP and 2003 Server. When i try to boot up linux from floppy its telling me that maybe the swap partition is not enable and something about kernel panic. then is saids try by passing the ini....

You should boot a rescue CD and try to repair the bootloader from the rescue system.

Boot either knoppix or tomsrtbt. Then mount your / partition, say on /drogo. Then issue something like /drogo/bin/lilo -C /drogo/etc/lilo.conf or the equivalent grub command.
