First of all: I don't know how others on this list feel about this,
but you would certainly make my life easier if you posted your
messages in plain text rather than HTML.

The reason you are getting the error message is probably that you
don't have a partition /dev/hda2.  Maybe you created your root
partition as a logical one, in which case it is likely to be
/dev/hda5.  Type

	fdisk -l

at the shell prompt of your rescue disk.

Have you tried grub as well?
