Subject description: wrong editing of menu.lst
 

Hello,

I just messed up with grub.
Puppy is installed on hda4
I wrote a wrong line on menu.lst and now I have error 15 and can not boot anymore.
I don't have internet on that computer.
I don't have CDROM neither.

For the good news, I found a software called :
Super Grub Disk
(http://geocities.com/supergrubdisk/)
So I can boot with it, untill it present the grub shell
grub>

I write

Code : grub console

Quote:
root (hd0,3)
kernel /vmlinuz root=/dev/hda4
boot



But I have a error 15 : file not found after

kernel /vmlinuz root=/dev/hda4


Can anybody help please ?

If this is a 'normal install' vmlinux is not usually
/vmlinux

rather

/boot/vmlinux

If it is a frugal install how about the initrd ?

Subject description: Easy way to repare grub menu.lst
 

This for beginners like me.
I messed up with my menu.lst file.
I could't boot anything anymore (puppy and other distro).
There is actually an easy way to repair your mistake (if it is just a mistake in your menu.lst boot sequence)

When you start the computer, grub will load
and you will be presented with different choice (me, it is puppy)
but if you just choose your distro and press enter, you will be faced with error 15

so, don't press enter, choose your distro and press 'e' (as it is written a little bit lower on the same screen), it will edit your boot sequence and you can manually change each line !

I found that a little bit late, after wondering many hours on the net, and as I have no cdrom and no internet on this very computer, it was a very easy trick I was happy of.

Cheers,
Hope to be able to contribute,
Dam
