Error after reboot

Hi,
   I have a machine with RH 6 and 2 hardisk (hda and hdb). After the machine reboot, some errors appear and cannot run properly:

read_intr: status=0x51 {DriveReady SeekComplete Error}


And I try to reboot with boot disk and use rescue mode, but still not success with command e2fsck. I found that only the hdb return with "coluld this be a zero-length partition?" problem.

   How can I fix this problem? As my disk is FAT format, can I use another OS to boot it and copy the data out?

Many Thanks

e2fsck works for ext2, not FAT. Have a look at

http://rpmfind.net/linux/RPM/mandrake/8.1/i586/Mandrake/RPMS/dosfstools-2.8-1mdk.i586.html 

that package contains a fsck.vfat, I think that should solve your problems. once it's installed, I think fsck should find and use it, otherwise call it manually.

Hope this helps.

2- remove the APM power managment, try rebooting .

  Sorry that I know little about Linux, can I make some changes that can boot with hda only? coz my data was stored in hda.
  Can I upgrade/reinstall the RH to get data back?

Thx for your valuable comment

What steps should I do? If I have a RH 7.2 CD, can I install it and get back my data in original RH 6?

well, if it is just a meanless data, just forget about it because i searched the internet and everywhere they say (THERE WILL BE NO RECOVERY), sorry man...

But if the data is worthy, I would start having this solved by doing the following..


1- Installing RH 6.2, try to recover the data !!
PS>> DO NOT FORMAT WHILE INSTALLING !!

2- Installing RH 7.2, try again, DO NOT FORMAT !!

3- Try a Partition Magic program to convert the partition to a more readable format, this is guaranteed not to loose any data while converting the partition .
after converting it from FAT to anything ot vise-versa, try recovering your data then .

PS>
sorry for poor english, but i hope you understand .
