New Mobo & CPU - Red Hat Won't Boot
So my computer decided to die on me and the result was that I had to buy a new Motherboard and CPU. I decided to go with an Intel 865PE chipset and 2.4C Pentium4, because I was tired of reliability issues with my AMD XP set up.
However, I was surprised to find neither my Windows XP nor my Red Hat 8.0 installs would boot after the change. I was able to recover XP with a recovery install, but I'm still lost as to what to do to save my Red Hat. I can't do a new install because I will lose all the data I had on there. I tried doing an upgrade install but that appeared to only upgrade some packages, and I believe the kernal needs updating. I also tried recovery mode, but I dont really know where to begin fixing the kernals, and I didnt see any commands that would really help me out.
I dont really know where to start, so if anyone could help me out that would be wonderful. The only thing I'm really concerned about is saving the data in my /home directory, however I'm not exactly sure how i can save that information to a CDRW from Recovery mode. If you can inform me of a way to get Red Hat booting, even it it screws up all my previously installed packages and such, that would be great. Thanks.
