Unhappy grub manual booting


Hi All,

I've installed rhel on a dell machine having sata drive. Now probably it has been corrupted and hence when starting the computer it gives me a grub prompt. Iíve tried the following solution

root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz.... root (hd0,2)
initrd /initrd....
boot

from the grub prompt. Now it is saying kernel panic no sysncing:vfs unable to mount the root file system on unknown block..

probably my / is on lvm and boot is a partion.

anybody can help....

thankx
regards
Rudra

More info needed. Do you have any other partitions with other operating systems on them. If you got the Dell with some windows version, they usually have a partition for rescue mode. If you have a Live CD you can use, run the command "fdisk -l" and post the results. No quotes and that's a lower case letter L, not a one.
