Yes:
Disk /dev/hda: 240 heads, 63 sectors, 3876 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 15120 * 512 bytes

   Device Boot    Start       End    Blocks   Id  System
/dev/hda1   *         1       817   6176488+   7  HPFS/NTFS
/dev/hda2           818      3876  23126040    f  Win95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/hda5           818      1495   5125648+  83  Linux
/dev/hda6          1496      1529    257008+  82  Linux swap
/dev/hda7          1530      2894  10319368+   7  HPFS/NTFS
/dev/hda8          2895      3605   5375128+   7  HPFS/NTFS
/dev/hda9          3606      3876   2048728+   b  Win95 FAT32

Because I can't mount the root fs, I haven't any info in /var/log/boot.log
file.
I will recompile the kernel again (make mrproper).

	Thanks,
