Problem of Suse Linux GRUB file

I boot, and now I have grub, and no idea what to do. .

So, after the BIOS I get this:

GNU GRUB version 0.95 (640k lower / 391644k upper memory)

[ Minimal BASH-like editing is supported. For the first word, TAB lists possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB lists the possible completions of a device/filename.]


Pressing tab gives:
Possible commands are: background blocklist boot cat chainloader clear cmp color configfile debug displayapm displaymem embed find foreground fstest geometry halt help hide impsprobe initrd install ioprobe kernel lock makeactive map md5 crypt module modulenounzip pager partnew parttype password pause read reboot root toornoverify savedefault serial setkey setup splashimage terminal terminfo testload testvbe unhide uppermem vbeprob
So right now I am totally stuck. Any help at all will be very welcome.

Thanks for reading & any help suggested.

It sounds like you either don't have Linux installed or GRUB is not configured to look at the correct partition.

Did this ever work or did this happen immediately after installing Linux?

Moved: This thread is more suitable in Linux - Newbie and has been moved accordingly to help your thread/question get the exposure it deserves.

I also edited your title to remove the word "urgent", which is considered demanding & therefore rude. HTH (Hope This Helps).

Agree with stress_junkie's diagnosis; can you please say which version of SuSE you have, as it doesn't seem to be the up to date version of openSuSE ( supply version number and is it SLED, etc)?

Additionally, if you have a Live CD, you might find that you have a more comfortable environment for editing grub.conf (if that's the problem).

and, to generalise stress_junkie's question slightly:

What happened, or what did you do, just before you started getting this problem?
