No mountpoints defined after magic partition...

I've 2 hard disks. Each of them is 120Giga...

Before the magic partition, my partition is like:

sda1: windowsxp
sda2: swap
sda3: not used

stb1: FC3
stb2: swap
stb3: SUSE
stb4: not used

I installed GRUB in stb1 FC3.

Yesterday, I tried to combined sda2 and sda3 to sda1. Yes, successful!!!

But, after magic partition to integrate sda1, sda2 and sda3, the only way I can restart a computer is to type a lot of command lines after "grub" prompt like

kernel ...

I checked my grub.conf in stb1: FC3
title Fedora Core (2.6.11-1.35_FC3)
root (hd1,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.11-1.35_FC3 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.11-1.35_FC3.img
title Fedora Core (2.6.11-1.35_FC3smp)
root (hd1,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.11-1.35_FC3smp ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.11-1.35_FC3smp.img
title WindowsXP
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1
title SuSE Linux 9.2
root (hd1,2)
kernel (hd1,2)/boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sdb3
vga=0x31a selinux=0 splash=silent resume=/dev/sdb2 showopts desktop elevator=as
initrd (hd1,2)/boot/initrd

It's unchanged, which is supposed to be correct, right??
I also revised my /ect/fstab as follows:

LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
/dev/sda1 /mnt/windowsXP ntfs ro,users,umask=022 0 0
/dev/sdb2 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/sdb3 /mnt/SuSE ext3 ro,users 0 0
pamconsole,exec,noauto,fscontext=system_ubject_r:removable_t,managed 0 0
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy auto pamconsole,exec,noauto,fscontext=system_ubject_r:removable_t,managed 0 0

I think everything is ok, right?

Then, I reboot to FC3, and reinstalled GRUB through "Synaptic", it seems it has no reflect to anything....

Anybody can help me?????

wishes (and I'm quite confident that most of my... `peers' agree): put the contents of all files in code tags, like this:
This ("[ code ] foo [ /code ]", but without the spaces) produces `foo', with a monospaced text, which facilitates reading.
The same goes for grub input and output and all other text you wish to provide an exact representation of.


And please provide the grub input (and its responses) with which you boot your OSes. Can you boot them all? How?

Also, try tab-completing all your disks and partitions--does it match your expectations? What are they? They may be wrong.

Try @code{find}ing (using grub) the files (kernel-images and @code{initrd}s) you boot--is the location correct (and/or expected)?

Then, I reboot to FC3, and reinstalled GRUB through "Synaptic", it seems it has no reflect to anything....
As should be--the grub package doesn't install the bootloading code itself, it just installs a tool that generates the bootloading code.
A parallel: installing a C compiler doesn't automatically compile all your C programs--*you* have to do that.

You need to re-run grub-install (I think)--try also $ grub<tab>.

I don't think I know enough to walk you through it all, but I hope this will get you started and make you provide enough info so that someone else can. If you haven't read Smart Questions yet, then now is the time

(and don't re-post the data in code tags, edit your post )
