Description of problem:
I had Fedora Core 3 installion on my laptop (on /dev/hda8) then I decided to install SUSE10 on another partion (/dev/hda6). The problem I have now is that FC3 is not booting any more, I tried to use the FC3 installion CDs to in the rescue mode but it gave error. I decided that I will to select upgrade the existing system while installing from the FC3 CDs. I got the following error.

I'd be glad if anyone can help, since I already have installed many packages on FC3 and will b painful to reinstall stuff again. One other note, When booting SUSE, I can mount /dev/hda8 and access my files and stuf there. The FC3 partition (/dev/hda8) is formatted as ext3, while the SUSE10 partion (/dev/hda6) is formatted as reiser.
