Can you open the program pmount and see the partitions that are shown?

Try mounting each partition and see if you can locate a /boot/grub directory.

@Meshica7: Can you post the contents of your fstab file. This file can be located in /etc folder on your /dev/hdc1. You must first run livecd, then open pmount and mount the /dev/hdc1. Then click on the icon next to /dev/hdc1 and navigate to /etc folder. Open the fstab file and post the contents here.

Looks like we might be able to give frugal a try.

@Meshica7:

please boot using the live cd again and mount the cd (using pmount program , click on /dev/hda1 or whichver says CD). Also mount /dev/hdc1. Now copy the files from the CD to /dev/hdc1 (by dragging them from one window to the other and choosing "copy".

Now navigate to /boot/grub folder on /dev/hdc1. Open the menu.lst file. Delete all lines except the lines with the color and timeout and add the following:

Code:
title Macpup 2.17.1 Alpha1
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
kernel (hd0,0)/vmlinuz root=/dev/ram0 pmedia=idehd
initrd (hd0,0)/initrd.gz


Now reboot. Post back what happens.

Prit...

Just to make sure....


Is this what the file should look like after I alter it?



timeout 15

color cyan/blue white/blue


title Macpup 2.17.1 Alpha1

rootnoverify (hd0,0)

kernel (hd0,0)/vmlinuz root=/dev/ram0 pmedia=idehd

initrd (hd0,0)/initrd.gz




At any rate,here's what happened after I saved the new file and rebooted:

Now executing 'init' script in initial-ramdisk...

(Note: initial ram-ramdisk is retained and in /initrd after bootup)
Loading kernel modules...done
Looking for Puppy in hdc1...done
Loading swap partition /dev/hdc5...done
Mounting /dev/hdc1 on (initrd)pup_rw...done
Creating tmpfs for pup_217.sfs on (/initrd)/mnt/tmpfs...done
Copying pup_217.sfs to tmpfs...mounting on (initrd)/pup_ro2...done
Creating unionfs on (/initrd)/pup_new (to become '/')...done
init: applet not found
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!
_


Well,it got along further than any other time.
However...now I am getting this message even when I try to boot from the Macpup CD. I am posting this using the Puppy Linux CD.

Does this help you any?

Talk to ya soon.

Juan

@Meshica7: I am sorry for the delay in getting back. Was in meetings and trainings at work even through the weekend. I am sorry to say that I am not sure how we can resolve this issue with the Grub. I am not an expert on these. I have sent a PM to a person I think might know, but did not get a response yet. I will let you know if I get any response or find any solution.
