BTW - I'm a Newbie, go light on the hep, cause I'm Linux illiterate, but at 
least I got this far!!

Trying to Upgrade from 7.3 Valhalla - she's bugged and won't open into Rh9.

Checked it a few times even went through the disc verifrickation and that was 
okay too!

Probably something between the chair and the keyboard!

Still need help though!?

Could you append to this report the contents of the file /etc/lilo.conf? It
appears to be a problem reading that file.

Also having details on the type of system is helpful.

Well the Guy in between the Chair and Keyboard (me) just decided to give up 
waiting a guru answer ( coffee comes faster!) and committed himself to a New 
Install of Rh9. 
Sure, I may have been able to read the lines telling me somewhere that it 
might have been easier to upgrade through RH 7.3 to 8 then to 9.x, but there's 
no apparent (note!) that tells you, I'll stick to simple Linux installs from 
now on and you can be sure I won't bother the folks who must " have better 
things to do"....... 
I spent the time to fix/mend it myself. Sure I lost everything i was hoping to 
keep, but next time, I'll plan a little more Disaster/Recovery in the 
future....get my images proper and all, maybe even , gosh!?, partition the 
drive properly!! 
I'm not a geek, I'm a level minded fool that seeks the alternative to 
something that I just hate ( Windoze(x)!). Finding a reasonable answer in a 
reasonable amount of time may produce more users to the Linux side!? 
CAll me what you will, I'm happy working enough in the manner that I'm 
oh, yeah ,  
no need to respond, I'll figure you got the message but just choose to ignore
