Linux Installation Probelm - "Invalid System Disk"
Hey everyone,

I just did an install of Linux on my crappy P2 400 computer and for some reason after the installation, everytime I boot the computer up it says "invalid system disk" It doesn't seem to be booting correctly. I tried using the rescue disk and doing a grub-install /dev/hda but that didn't work either.

Anybody have any ideas Smile

Thanks in advance for your help!

And your sure you don't have a disk in the floppy drive? ;)

Also, you do have grub pointing to the correct hard drive correct?

You just had to ask it eh!? ;)

Yeah floppy and cd-rom are empty. As for pointing to the correct drive, I believe so. Is there a certain directory it should be pointing too? Like a special kernel or something?

Thanks for your reply :)
