RE: Lost linux partition
I boot from boot floppy only, no lilo... and the boot floppy stratightaway
loads the kernel without any lilo prompt...... and then gets stuck at Kernel
Panic: No root file system.
I do have debian rescue disk under the c: and I try to boot from there.... I
get a console....but running lilo has no meaning here....
I am afraid its lost for ever... does NAV back up the partition table before
