Your post was very confusing, and made no sense. happy.gif Could you please restate your question?

I assume you want to be able to boot your linux system, but I need more information.

if you want to save your system why not do the simple way?

1. Remove that hard disk you want to rescue and place it into a working linux computer (RH9 etc...)

2. type

3. mount /dev/hd** /mnt/rescue (!!!! YOU MUST CREATE THE /mnt/rescue directory!!!!)

how to create directory ? just do this
cd /mnt
mkdir rescue

once you have mounted that hard drive you can copy whatever you wish from it, to your working linux computer, and from there back it up on a cd or whatever you want.

I hope this will help you.

if you are using RedHat ... then the system disk is either ext2 or ext3.

if you go to the directory /etc (on the mounted drive .. so if it is mounted in /mnt/rescue ... it would be in /mnt/rescue/etc), look for the file named redhat-release ... that should tell you the version number for this install.

also in the /mnt/rescue/etc directory will be an fstab file that will tell you what filesystems the drive is (etx2 or ext3).

also, if you can mount the drive in /mnt/rescue, you should be able to do:

chroot /mnt/rescue

then run the command:

lilo -v -v

to try and rebuild the boot record...
