Grub Error 24 with VectorLinux SOHO 3.2
 
Hi - the installation of SOHO 3.2 went smooth. However, at first boot, the following error message appeared: GRUB error 24. Do I have to reinstall from scratch or can I save my existing installation? And how would I save my existing installation?

Your feedback would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

OI!
A bit late on the response , I'm afraid , but here's my take on it:

It looks like grub tries to look for the Vector-kernel at the wrong place.
If you have any means of booting up your other distro (debian , right?) do so and edit the Vector-entry for Grub , so it points to the full path of it.
ie.- If Vector is installed on hda5 , the entry should read something like:
Quote:

image = /boot/vmlinuz
root = /dev/hda5
label = Vector4.0
This is taken from my Lilo.conf , might look different in Grub.
