Error 15 --> rescue system w/DVD --> Login Incorrect

This is a bit wordy but maybe the details will help...

I installed Suse 10.3 ~ three weeks ago on a spare PIII box, got two IP printers going, the rest of my wired mshome peer network was communicating fine, & everything was ok for a few weeks.

Tonight on (HD) boot I saw Grub Loader Error 15 with no further explanation. This is a single O/S box, Linux only. So I inserted the DVD live install disc, 10.3 loaded into ram, a bunch of boot files went by ending with the RESCUE LOGIN prompt.

Just a quick aside: There is zero possibility that my login name/password are incorrect. I've used this same login name and password for years on my home network from '98 thru NT 3.51/4.0 to XP. That way I can never forget.

Unfortunately, I get LOGIN INCORRECT with every Rescue Login attempt. My login name is accepted, I assume because, it's followed by the PASSWORD prompt. But Login Incorrect is the only result. Does anyone have a suggestion as to what the prob could be? Is it FDISK time now? Is my 10.3 installation trashed?

Hopeful in Michigan

TYVM in advance.

Instead of typing in your login name, try typing rescue instead.


boot, error, failure, grub
