Hi,
I use Red Hat Linux 7.2
I have a problem after I use "parted" and "gpart". While I try to restor
and resize partition, I got an error--

EXT2-fs: unable to read superblock
attempt to access beyond end of device
03:03: rw=33, limit=1
isofs_read_super: bread faild, dev=03:03, iso_blknum=16, block=32
kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 03:03

What should I do now?
I started up by "linux rescue" , but /etc/fstab, /etc/lilo.conf and /boot
have disappeared.
Could someone please advise me on how to set things up?
Thanks

with regards,
naoshi

When you do linux rescue, It gives you the message where it is mounting the file system.

you do chroot the path where the FS is mounted as :-

$chroot path

after which your file/dirs will be accessible where you expect them to be.
