i have no clue what do do, i have tried using the recovery disk but it doesnt seem to help
it would be great if you guys could help biggrin.gif

A couple things: It wasn't quite clear in your post, but this is a new problem? That is, you had it booting before, and now it has stopped booting? I assume that Madriva still uses Lilo as the boot loader, is that correct? If so, can you please show me what your boot option in Lilo looks like, it doesn't seem like its formed correctly. Or worse, part of the boot information is missing. Not sure yet. You are probably going to want to grab yourself a copy of Knoppix so you can boot up and look around on your drive. Knoppix is a great tool to have. Answer my question and we can see what the problem is.
