Dual boot system, WinME on 1st disk, Redhat9 on 2nd. GRUB boot loader. When Windows dies and requires re-installing, this isn't normally a problem - it overwrites the boot record, but then I boot off a Redhat startup floppy disk, and re-install GRUB.
The problem I have at the moment is, when I went to boot off the floppy, it had become corrupt in some way and wasn't bootable. So then I installed redhat9 on a different (single HD) machine, made a boot disk there, thinking I could then use that disk to boot my machine off. The system starts booting VMLINUZ but stops at 'Kernel Panic Init not found'.
Presumably the floppy is looking for a boot record on the primary HD on IDE0 (from machine I created the floppy on) and I need to 'redirect' to look where the boot record really is on my second HD. how do I do this? Any help much appreciated.
