2732Re: [redhat] Re: Corrupted MBR
- Aug 2, 2001I had also faced similar problem and in order to boot from linux.
i used the rescue disk and at the boot prompt, type
boot : linux root=/dev/hda6 ---> the partition on which linux is installed.
And once the system boots up , run /sbin/lilo to make it dual boot again
