I read thru some posts about people who had problems booting into RH9... I'm runnin a dual boot RH9 and XP on my inspirion 5100 laptop... had to reinstall windows afterwards, and now GRUB wont load. I've booted into the RH9 disc 1, ran a update, decided to reinstall the boot loader. i tried to reinstall GRUB, didnt work, got a "no kernel installed"... redid that but for LILO, same problem. ran rescue mode, did a chroot /mnt/sysimage... exit, exit, reboot... still no bootloader. i need help here - i dont want to have to reinstall RH9 all over again... if i have to, i will - there's nothing i have saved, program/file wise, that i need to worry about just yet... just dont want to have to go thru the hassle of reinstalling. can anybody help me out here?
I am not sure what your problem is. One thing I would check is your partition configuration. Do you have separate partitions for / and boot? If so, then one possibility is that the / partition is OK but the boot partition is clobbered.
Another possibility is that /etc/fstab contains an error.
