I have two root partitions, both with Mandrake 9.1 installed on them. One is "hdb1" and the other is "hdb6". I can boot into the first ("hdb1") just fine.

When I try to get to the second ("hdb6"), it stops loading and says something about a kernel panic, and that I should try passing the "Init" option to the kernel.

All of my files (about 10 gig total) are on the "hdb6" partition. How can I access this from my "hdb1" partition?

"hdb6" does not show up in Kwikdisk.

I need to recover my files from "hdb6" and move them to "hdb1". Once this is done, I can format "hdb6", since I don't need two instances of the same operating system.

Thanks for any assistance,
