boot stops at grub>


I'm using SuSE 9.2 and made a minor (!) change to the bootfile with yast (swapped the order of hd's) and now my bootup stops at a 'grub>' prompt.

is there some way to get yast to run or a way to fix this at the command level?

thanx to all

Did you install the bootloader into the MBR? or the root drive?

You could have moved something, and it can no longer find grub (the grub prompt does this)

Do you have any LIVE cd's?? You could always use simplyMEPIS (or something like it) to install grub onto your system (hell, even gentoo) and redo the menu.lst.
