If you boot from the cdrom to rescue mode and install lilo, does that work?  If
not, what does your partitioning look like?
Comment 2 Mike 2002-03-13 14:49:09 EST
We did a re-install using lilo instead of grub and everything worked fine.
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2002-03-13 16:18:31 EST
Does grub work better if you use the updated grub package at
http://people.redhat.com/~katzj/grub/ ?
Comment 4 Mike 2002-03-15 11:57:20 EST
Thanks for the info on the new grub.  The server has been taken to the co-lo so 
I no longer have access to test the new grub and we will just use lilo.

Not much more that I can do, then, unfortunately.  There have been a few reports
like this that have been fixed with the newer version, though fwiw.  If you get
a chance to test in the future, please feel free to reopen with more information.
