I need some help.. I am a linux noobie.. I have sucessfully installed suse9.2 on a clean drive without problem but need help installing/booting within a vmware session.. Details below:
Windows XP Pro host system
VMWare Workstation 4.5.2 build 8848
Installed SuSe 9.2 in VMWare session. For some reason it had to use text based YaST to install.. Seemed to install fine..
root partiton on /dev/sda2
swap partiton on /dev/sda1
The system then wants to boot... This is where GRUB loads and all I have is a grub> prompt.. And this is where I get totally lost and nothing I do seems to work right.. From my research on GRUB I believe I need to load the kernel and then run the boot command each with certain parameters. Can someone please help me with the syntax of each command or point me to the right commands so I can see if this thing will boot? I wont list here what I have tried thus far as I dont want to taint the thread with poor commands (or show how much I suck at this).
Your help will be much appreciated..
