RedHat 8.0 Boot Problem
Posted on 2003-04-01
Im a Linux newbie recently installed RedHat 8.0 into dual boot w/ WinXP. Installation went fine but made the mistake of using Partition Magic on XP few days later and RedHat became unbootable.
Read some forums and got GRUB working again, and XP boots fine but get the following error when I choose RedHat:
Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
kernel/vmlinuz-2.4.18- ro root=LABEL=/hdc=ide-scsi
Error 15= File not found
Since linux files are on partition 5, editing and booting GRUB to "root (hd0,5)" got RedHat to load but it seems to change back to "(hd0,6)" after shutting down. How can I get GRUB to point to root (hd0,5) permanently?
Pretty sure I need to change GRUB config file...or something.
Again, Im a newbie so pls give me details.
